Letter: Thanks for quick emergency response

A heartfelt thank you to the Akeley First Response, North Memorial Ambulance from Park Rapids and Walker, and the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office for their professional, competent, prompt response when I recently had a life-threatening emergency at my home in rural Chamberlain.

I am impressed with their caring attitudes as well as their knowledge and help in both stabilizing me before traveling on to the Bemidji Hospital and making sure that my family was helped through this crisis. The Akeley First Response richly deserves the change from a volunteer organization to being a part of the East Hubbard County Fire District, which just happened within the last few months. The Akeley community is well-served by this organization, the ambulance service and sheriff’s office. Thank you all for making a difficult situation better for all involved.
