Family thanks emergency personnel for saving dadís life
January 23, 2013
On the morning of Jan. 2, our father suffered a severe stroke.
Our mother called 9-1-1 and emergency personnel responded immediately and transported him to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital.
We would like to thank all of the people involved with this 9-1-1 call. From the moment the call was placed to the arrival at the hospital everyone was wonderful.
The 9-1-1 operator informed our mother of what she needed to do, and even offered to stay on the line until the paramedics arrived.
The ambulance drivers not only cared for our Dad, but also, made sure our mother had locked her home and that she had everything she needed in order to get back in.
We don't know the names of the individuals who responded to this call.
However, if you were part of the team that responded to the call on Sanders Road, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Dad is in the rehabilitation unit at St. Joe's and is working on the long road to recovery.
Again, we say thanks for taking such great care of our family during this crucial time.
The daughters of Roger Rickwalt
