First responders work through rain and sleet and snow

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

First responders say the weather won't keep them from responding to emergencies.

Albany firefighters say they're trained to drive their big trucks in all types of weather. They will take extra precautions if they have to drive on wet or icy roads. Firefighter Eric Graham said, "Braking sooner, just driving a little slower, paying more attention to overhanging limbs to the trees, just watching the roads and other drivers that are not used to driving in these conditions."

The weather may cause slower response times, but firefighters say they will get to their destinations as safely as possible.
