Letters: Thanks to Sooke rescue crews

Ambulance and fire service crews responded promptly

I wish to say a big, public, “Thank You” to the Sooke Ambulance and Fire Services.

On Friday, June 15, a little before 7 p.m., I was the subject of a 911 call made by my wife.

I wish to thank both the Ambulance and Fire Services for the speed of their response, and the manner in which they all handled my care.

They carried caution to the extreme to ensure that no further damage was done, over and above the damage that I had perpetrated on myself – neck braces, carry boards, and great care in lifting and moving me. I was delivered to Victoria General Hospital promptly and the paramedics made sure that I was well taken care of to the extent of visiting me before they left the hospital.

They even called on me on their return with another accident victim.

I am pleased to say that I only needed a few stitches, and am doing fine. Thanks guys; oh, and one girl.

Eric W. Hurwood Sooke
