The AEDC Fire Department, represented by, from left, Kip Luttrell, crew chief; John Templeton, firefighter; Joey Edwards, driver operator; Sam Teat, fire fighter; Tom Lombard, assistant chief; Lonnie Brown, driver/operator; Dwane Kimmel, crew chief; Billy Miles, paramedic/firefighter; Jay Baldwin, driver/operator; Odell Crutchfield, crew chief; and Carey Powers, driver/operator, hosted Mark Kelly Olson in a recent visit. Olson, 10, of Shelbyville, was diagnosed with very high-risk, acute lymphocytic leukemia in May and was later "adopted" by the Arnold AFB Fire Department as their new deputy fire chief. Olson conducted roll call, inspected firefighting equipment and helped demolish a car, symbolizing his battle with cancer. His father, Mark, is an ATA operations controller at Arnold.
