George West grateful for help in crisis

On Saturday, June 29, George West faced one of its greatest public safety challenges of 2013. A horrendous 11-vehicle traffic accident at the intersection of Highway 281 and Houston Street pushed the limitations of our local law enforcement, public works employees and area public safety officials to their limits.

As always, our chief of police and his officers rose to overcome this challenge. Equally, our public works director and his staff exhausted all their energy and efforts to once again restore and ensure the health, safety and welfare to our community.

Each and every citizen within our community we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to these individuals and area law enforcement officials for the quick and heroic actions when faced with this horrific situation.

We are also indebted to those who offered heart felt prayers for the victims of this catastrophic events. I believe that these prayers were what kept everyone alive during this emergency.
