To the editor: Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, my husband fainted and fell in the kitchen. I called 911 and was told what to do and that help was on the way.

In a very short time, an off-duty EMT was at the door and started checking his vitals. Soon, there were six EMTs or paramedics here taking care of him and assuring us it (fainting) was from age, heat and dehydration.

They recommended going to the emergency room for further testing, which we did. The hospital also was prompt in caring for him in every way.

We are so thankful for these capable, concerned and dedicated young people who are on constant call. God bless you each and all on the road and on the job. We are blessed to have you.
