Six firefighters from are , from June 9-12 to deliver fire equipment and to help rebuild an area ravaged by tornadoes in the spring of 2011.
One of the six fighters—Brian Zimmerman—will blog from Alabama to keep the community abreast of the trip.
After an exhausting 13-hour drive, we finally made it to Hackleburg.
The members of the Hackleburg Fire Department met us at their fire station, and we delivered them a donated fire hose.
After we delivered the hose, some of the Hackleburg firefighters took us around town to see the progress that the town has made since last year's devastating F5 tornado.
Shortly after the tour, Hackleburg fire Chief Steve Hood treated us to a delicious dinner at Bama-Q Pit & Grill.
We headed back to the church where we are staying at while we are down here. The Baldwin boys were exhausted and couldn't wait to hit the hay after some of us were up for 40-plus hours.
