Loalized flooding, treacherous gravel roads, and a boil advisory made life difficult for residents in Forest City over the weekend. Luckily for the residents, emergency services stepped in to help. "Today we just went to the point where we were knocking on doors of apartments buildings that knew had a lot of elderly residents," said Dale Rayhons, Forest City's Paramedic Supervisor and Service Director. The boil advisory meant that residents were trying to find fresh water, but not everyone was able to get out and about to distribution centers or to the stores. So the Forest City Ambulance Service took it to them for free. Rayhons says residents are forever grateful. "It was like a kid on Christmas morning - bringing them a present," said Rayhons.
