    I would like to give thanks to all the Fire and Rescue members today for the very hard job they had. This accident had only 2 people in the car and both expired at the scene. The Faber Fire Department, Nelson Rescue, Wintergreen Rescue, North garden Fire and Rescue and Virginia State Police did a great job dealing with everything. As the Emergency Services coordinator of Nelson County it is very good to know we have such a strong base of people who commit to doing everything they can to save livess in this County. I am thankfull for thir quick response, and commitment to thier work.
    Since Virginia State Police is working this accident I am not able to say much about this accident, but I do want to thank the members of Fire and Rescue for they very hard work they do.

    We agree Ray. The fire and rescue teams in this area do an outstanding job and and outstanding job of coordinating with each other. Being a former EMA director and law enforcement administrator myself from back in Tennessee, I can appreciate the gravity of coordinating all of that!

    We are very blessed to have a great group of folks working together here in the Nelson area.
