Franklin County residents start tornado relief effort
When Tony Hodge heard and saw the death and destruction left from Monday’s tornado in Oklahoma, he could relate to what survivors and rescue workers were enduring. “We were there (on April 27, 2011),” said Hodge, assistant fire chief at East Franklin Volunteer Department. That’s the day a tornado hit Franklin, Lawrence and Marion counties, leaving death, injuries and miles of destruction. “We needed help then and people helped us.

Central Alabama firefighters undergo lifesaving training
Central Alabama firefighters were called to action Wednesday. Several departments worked together to help rescue people from collapsing buildings and holes. It was just a training exercise, but the obstacles weren't new. All of the drills were incidents that firefighters encountered in Oklahoma and even in Alabama following the April 27, 2011 tornadoes. Firefighters hope they never have to use these skills. But as some departments learned two years ago, it can save lives.

Ninety-seven firefighters from volunteer fire departments across Randolph County trained in the Alabama Fire College's burn trailer last week. The training was sponsored by Randolph County Fire Association, and the burn trailer was parked at Rock Stand Volunteer Fire Department.
