Taylorville has come along way since an early December tornado devastated the city. Taylorville fire Chief Mike Crews and Assistant Fire Chief Andy Goodall reflect on the day the tornado hit, and why they had to break protocol.

 

 

After the tornado hit, a commad center was put together at the Taylorville Fire Station. Crews from all over central Illinois came to assist in search and rescue, clean-up, and power lines. It was a chaotic scene from the outside, but Goodall was prepared to manage the situation.

 

 

Crews and Goodall were both guests on the News Talk WTIM Morning Show.
