Doing a good job even better

Newton County Fire Services and Rockdale Fire Rescue got together Monday for some in depth training at Hunting Creek subdivision on Flat Shoals Road in Conyers. Two units are set to be destroyed, but before the houses are demolished, firefighters from both counties will make good use of the training opportunities for both new recruits and seasoned firefighters. Training will continue through the week and the units will be burned to the ground Friday. Here, Rockdale Fire Rescue Relief Driver and Firefighter Lester Pittman (left) and Newton County Fire Service Lt.
