Letter to the Editor: Heroes among us

To the Editor:

I had an incident early one recent Saturday morning around 3:30 a.m. that called for the ambulance, EMTs and other volunteers from the Waterville Emergency Services crew. After their prompt response, I have a huge appreciation and respect for what they do for the community.

They are selfless and dedicated people. They donate themselves to be called on any time of the day or night and also do the training to be the best they can be when called. In our community they are ordinary citizens, like most of us, but when called on they are truly the heroes among us.

These volunteers, which include firemen as well, are in every community in the area. I thank them for all their service and the sacrifices they make to do it. It’s comforting to know we are in good hands.
