New Floyd County Rescue Squad Headquarters Dedicated

Honoring their history...that is the main message at Saturday's dedication ceremony for the Floyd County Emergency and Rescue Squad Headquarters.

Dozens came together to dedicate the 'Alexander-Goble-Willis Building'...a vision many years in the making.

That sense of pride for all members past and current, comes from why and how the organization was formed...after the 1958 bus crash, which is why the new building aims to honor that history.

A new state of the art headquarters worth 1.5 million dollars. Featuring a museum and a monument, to honor and remember the 27 lives lost...the 27 reasons the squad exists.

A new place to call home and help them better serve their community. More importantly, a place to serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made and why the Floyd County Emergency and Rescue Squad exists.
