This letter is to publicly thank the members of the RCMP and Port Hawkesbury Firefighters, as well as EHS staff, who came to my rescue after a recent accident.
On March 6, my husband and I took a lovely walk on the Hemlock Trail, starting at the parking lot at Grant’s Pond. We intended to go as far as Grandpa’s Bridge and return.
I fell twice, banging up my knee and chipping my ankle bone.
After the second fall I could no longer stand. We called 911 and within minutes about a dozen police officers and fire fighters were on scene, putting me in a basket and then on a one wheeled cart to get me to a waiting ambulance by the highway.
The care, professionalism and good cheer of these people truly rescued me that day. Rest assured, with a cast on for the next few weeks, I will not be trying to walk any icy slopes again this year.
Thank you so very much for your help.
