As a little girl, I spent most of my summers visiting my grandparents Owen and Novella Sharrett. I am from Indianapolis, so I loved coming to Appalachis. One of my many memories was listening for the scanner to go off and my mamaw and I chasing after every fire in town. Though some may have been tragic, those are going to be events I will never forget!

I just wanna thank the appalachia fire dept you guys are a well-maintained machine, I think this town needs to cut back on the swat team or some kind of other services and add a payroll for the fire dept, We as a town are lucky to have you spend your free time and family time for training,and to help us when something in our life goes way wrong,Once again thank you and god bless the APPALACHIA FIRE DEPT
