LETTER: Thanks given to emergency crews in tough situation

A Ponoka News reader offers gratitude to emergency personnel for their care in a tough situation

Dear Editor,

Often we hear so many complaints about our health care system but last week we can honestly say that we received the best of care and compassion from so many.

A huge thank you to the woman who kept me calm when I called 911, the first responders who showed up quickly when we had an emergency and then finished putting up the Christmas lights that my husband was working on when he had his fall, the paramedics who rushed here as fast as possible and the two paramedics that came from Rimbey to take us to Red Deer for a CT scan at 11 p.m. and brought us back to Ponoka, and the CT technician who was waiting for us when we pulled into Red Deer. And then to Dr. Moore and the nurses who monitored my husband all night long.

We appreciate all you did for us! Thank you!

Family of Rick Enns
