Ready to serve, protect

Recently I saw an accident involving a pickup truck and a moped. In a matter of two or three minutes of someone calling 911, the Traverse City Fire Department and police were on the scene.

The paramedics from the Traverse City Fire Department were able to begin assisting the moped driver, who was lying on the street in the rain, before the North Flight ambulance arrived.

Those city firefighters were able to get to that victim so quickly because they are centrally located, on staff and ready to respond.

I encourage all city residents to educate themselves and help fight to keep the Traverse City Fire Department in its existing status.

Every second counts in the event of an accident, and if you or your family member were lying there on a rainy street, you would be happy to know that the paramedic firefighters are only around the corner — ready to serve and protect.
