Recently, I came upon a smoking automobile that had driven off the road and hit a tree. A neighbor called 911.
All the airbags had deployed, debris was all over the road and the driver was severely hurt. Short minutes later, several units of the Seven Lakes Fire Department appeared at the scene and immediately and competently tore off the doors with the “jaws of life.” EMT’s quickly placed the gentlemen on a fracture board and a chopper was called in.
I want to recognize these teams for their speed and amazing precision. The short span of time between the accident and when the driver was airlifted was awe-inspiring. We should all be thankful to these dedicated emergency workers.
