Praise for paramedics
To the editor:
We are so hasty to criticize and so slow to praise. Today, I feel it is important to praise.
On Sept. 24, my husband suddenly became very ill. It was obvious that I needed to call 911. The paramedics and firemen responded unbelievably quickly to our home.
They took charge immediately and, because of their awesome teamwork and speed, my husband is alive and well today.
Thank you is not enough, but I hope you can feel my immense gratitude. Your kindness and timely manner of action are greatly valued. Kelowna is truly blessed to have each and every one of you taking care of her citizens. God bless you for all you do.
An added word of advice, to the public, if I may: When you hear an ambulance siren, don’t hesitate but pull over immediately. It may be intended for someone you love who is in dire need. I know.
