This would make a great warning sign I think. Now I am not one to capitalize on another's misfortune and I am most assuredly ecstatic that no one was hurt over the weekend, but the images of the vehicles in the ditches should have had a distinct effect on everyone's commute into town. Hopefully it slowed everyone down a bit. It slowed me down.
The North Tongass Volunteer Fire Department is getting pretty darn good at responding to wrecks around the north end. In fact, we have spent a lot of time and money this fall getting ready. We would rather not have to do any of it, however. So please, especially with the holidays coming, SLOW DOWN! No one has that far to go or that short of time to get there.
Here are a few suggestions if you happen upon an accident:
From the North Tongass Volunteer Fire Department, have a fire safe and happy holiday season.
