I never thought I'd need an ambulance, but ...
When I fell off a 10-foot ladder at work and landed on a hardwood floor, I was never so happy to have such a quick response to that 911 call. I was in great pain and very frightened because I didn't know how much damage had taken place.
The professionalism and soothing demeanor of the ambulance team had a calming effect and from the moment they arrived I knew I was in safe, capable hands. Knowing I was in excruciating pain, they were ever so gentle in transporting me to the hospital where the emergency room doctor took over. X-rays revealed that I had a shattered wrist and broken upper arm and I was soon in the operating room.
While I hope I never have to take another ambulance ride, it's reassuring to know that if I do, there will be rapid, paramedic-level ambulance service available. I urge you to get out and vote "yes" on Proposition 1 on May 27 because you just never know when you might be taken on an ambulance ride.
