Thank you to our first responders

Pictured is Rachell Givens with the DeKalb Ambulance Service truck that carried her to the hospital in 2015. She credits Nick Guttery and Jacob Baff with saving her life.


I have waited four years to see this ambulance again and take this picture.

I was taken to the hospital on July 23, 2015, and on the way, they stopped in town and had to shock me. I flat-lined and Nick Guttery shocked me again.

Thank you to all of our first responders. God bless!

Rachell Givens, Fort Payne
