Wonderful response

This letter is to express my gratitude to the entire Basalt Fire District and EMS team that worked on Nov. 22. My husband and I and our two young nieces were in a rollover accident on Highway 82 near El Jebel, and the EMS team completely took my nieces under their wing and even gave them teddy bears to hold after the major wreck.

They also volunteered to give us a ride back to Glenwood Springs, as our truck was totaled, and we had just recently moved to the area from New York and had no other options. I would also like to say thank you to the anonymous couple in the green Ford truck that let my nieces sit and warm up in their vehicle before the emergency vehicles arrived.

We really appreciate everyone’s efforts and compassion that day to ensure our safety.
