Mountain Bike Rescues
The Anniston Fire Department participated in two mountain bike rescues this weekend. The two cyclists were injured on Coldwater Mountain at the same location on different days. Anniston Fire Department Training Officer Johnnie Phelps says there was one main problem during the rescues. Phelps says to avoid the problems encountered in this rescue cyclists should take their cell phones. He also credits volunteers and Calhoun County 9-1-1 with the rescue.
