Lowndes County - Crews from all over Georgia responded to the hardest hit areas to help counties overwhelmed by all the damage.

A team of four from Lowndes County Fire and Rescue left this morning for Americus in their Emergency Response vehicle.

The vehicle was packed with chainsaws and rescue equipment that would help with the search efforts in the city.

Lowndes has often called on other agencies for help in many situations and is just happy they can now return the favor.  "We are here to help, if we can afford to do it. We were lucky. The good Lord shined down on us and let it go around us so we're going to help the people that got hit,' says Fire Chief Jim Fielding.

Lowndes Fire and Rescue will continue to send teams until the community is back on it's feet.
