Edmonson Voice Staff Report
It's a phrase that has been nationally questioned, ridiculed, and even fought against, but Chalybeate Fire Department is the latest local emergency service that has proudly displayed the words "In God We Trust" on their emergency vehicles.
Local law enforcement offices decided to display the words several months ago and other emergency agencies have followed suit.
Chief Daniel Johnson said he felt like it was the right thing to do. "I think that when you look back to the founding of our country, it was based on Godly principles." Some of which that he said he feels like have slipped away. "Not only that, but it's our Nation's motto."
The lettering was done at no charge by Richie Jones, of Jones Custom Creations. Jones is also a volunteer firefighter and an Edmonson County Deputy Coroner.
