To the Editor:
I recently experienced a medical emergency that required a call to 9-1-1 and a ambulance trip to the hospital. Luckily, however, everything turned out well.
I want to inform the public about the paramedics and firefighters who were dispatched from the Crystal Lake Fire Station No. 4 on Bard and Huntley roads. Attending to me were paramedics Sergio Delgado and Drew Sytura and firefighters Joe Forsberg and Chris Angelo.
These gentlemen were the most efficient, capable, competent and reassuring individuals I have had the pleasure to come in contact with (under the circumstances). I cannot thank them enough and compliment them enough for what they did for me. In addition to all of their medical training, they put me at ease in regard to my medical situation.
Again, I hope no one has to have a 9-1-1 experience but, if you do, I hope you are treated by these men. Gentlemen, I thank you for your skill and expertise and Crystal Lake should be proud to have each of you working for us.
