A note of thanks to our volunteer firefighters and EMTs
Small towns are unique. Some are earmarked by a Dairy Queen, town square, multiple churches, a post office (where most pickup their mail), and a Main Street. And while some are absent of traffic lights, hospitals and grocery stores, they are all sustained by one thing: volunteers.
Recently, I stood on the sidelines as our volunteer EMTs tended to a friend dealing with a health crisis. Our volunteer firefighters and EMTs are the backbone of volunteerism in our community. Cool, calm, comforting and medically trained, these individuals are welders, farmers, repairmen at the John Deere house, retired and/or serve on various boards. They are everyday moms and dads and grandparents who voluntarily say, "I want to save people's lives."
