Letter: Thanks to the Carmel Fire Dept.
We recently had a medical emergency and would like to thank the Carmel Fire Dept. for the excellent care that they provided. The 911 dispatcher was very helpful and the firemen responded quickly. They immediately took action to stabilize the situation and transport the patient to the hospital.
We had a good outcome, but this event made us realize how very fortunate we are to live in a community which has such an outstanding fire department. In Carmel, CFD makes all of the emergency medical runs, and all firemen are trained as EMTs or paramedics. This is not the case in many other communities, and it ensures that we have first-rate emergency care, including advanced life support.
We appreciate the men and women who provide these services as members of the Carmel Fire Dept.
Lawrence and Ruth Ann Arany, Carmel
