In July of 2006 I was involved in a serious bicycle collision on the Wood River bike path near my home in Bellevue. I was riding home from work and was struck from behind by another cyclist who did not see me signal to stop as I exited the bike path.
After a witness called 911, the first on the scene were Bass Sears, a paramedic, Chief Bart Lassman and the crew from Wood River Fire and Rescue. After transfer to Saint Luke's Wood River Valley, I was sent by air ambulance to St Alphonsus in Boise, where I underwent surgery for a pelvic fracture and spent the next 15 days in recovery, from this life-changing accident.
I cannot understate the level of professionalism, care and service I received from W.R.F.R at a time of such trauma, Please vote yes on Proposition 1 to help keep the necessary ambulance and emergency medical equipment funding for those who have devoted their lives to community service.
