Letter: Emergency crews deserve credit

Gloucester Daily Times

---- — To the editor:

On Friday night, Jan. 11, I had the opportunity as a physician to observe the Gloucester 911 response team manage a health care emergency from start to finish in the Annisquam Village Library.

The police, firefighters and EMTs approached that difficult case efficiently, thoughtfully and knowledgeably. Their conclusion was effective, professional and respectful.

I wanted to share these observations because Gloucester residents should be aware of the great system and individuals out there ready to support them in need.
