Happy reunionThe B Shift of the Forrest City Fire Department recently helped Elounzo Smith, standing far right, with medical help for his wife, Joyce Smith. As Elounzo Smith drove by the FCFD on his way to the hospital, he said Joyce Smith was not breathing and had no pulse so he stopped for help. Firefighters were able to revive her in the driveway at the department before EMTs arrived. From left, are: Firefighter Sam Heard, paramedic Zachary McKennon, Lt. Jeremy Sharp, firefighters Keith Taylor, Terry Cox and Chris Ray, and FCFD Assistant Chief Anthony Renigar. Photo by Alan Smith.
