Letter to the Editor: County emergency services commended

To the Editor:
I would like to acknowledge and express my sincere appreciation for our local EMS, law enforcement personnel and all individuals for their assistance August 5. Once our 911 call regarding the situation with our canoe accident on the Upper Iowa River was received, their reply to our need was promptly and professionally handled.
I would also like to commend Veterans Memorial Hospital’s ambulance crew and employees who provided compassionate and professional care.
We are fortunate to live in a community with responsive and caring individuals.
