About a year ago I was in an almost fatal wreck. I was pinned in and in excruciating pain in my neck.
Our firemen came fast and went to work. One got in the back seat to help my husband hold my head still while two others started cutting me out with the jaws of life. They all were very gentle and kind. The others were busy doing the other necessary things they were trained to do. Everyone did an excellent job. They stayed with me until I was safely moved to the ambulance. (This included putting the collar on me, which saved my life!)
At the hospital the doctor that did my surgery said I would have been dead or paralyzed if the firemen hadn’t done their job in an outstanding way. Holding my head, carefully cutting me out, putting the collar carefully on, moving me so gently all helped to save my life. The doctor did a beautiful job on my neck surgery. Everyone did a good job on me and I am healing up nicely.
Thanks to everyone.
We were able to find the firemen who came to my aid and thank them. I didn’t get to know all their names but they appreciated our finding them and letting them know I lived and am getting on with my life. I still felt the need to let our community know what fine training our firemen get and how hard they work to save lives, not just with fire situations, but in life saving work in wrecks like mine.
I let firemen, paramedics and others that help us every day know how much we appreciate them and we thought you might like to be reminded to do the same and commend them for their job well done!
