Praise for SJIEMS

On Sunday evening, November 1st, my wife Helen experienced a medical problem that was beyond my capabilities to handle and so I dialed 911. I was immediately talking to a very capable person who very calmly asked all the right questions and who then assured me that help was on the way.

I did my best to make Helen comfortable, turned on the outside lights, unlocked the door, went back to her and within minutes, the EMT crew walked in the door.

I could then stand back and watch and what I observed was extreme competence, courtesy and caring. After determining that her vital signs were back to normal and they did not think that transport was necessary, they then helped me get her up into bed.

I doubt that there is a better EMS group anywhere in the world than the team that we lucky people have here in the San Juan Islands. Thanks guys!
