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.
