Teamwork impresses at accident scene

To the Editor,

I recently had to spend some time at an accident scene here; I witnessed the accident and wound up having to remain. As I stood quietly by, watching the arrival of all the various First Responders, I was amazed at how well these various agencies worked together as a team. Search and Rescue were first on the scene followed by the Fire Chief, some firefighters, the police and the ambulance and Interior Roads.

There was no confusion, no wasted time; people knew who was in command, what their own role was and they did it. The injured were looked after, traffic was kept moving safely, the accident scene was made safe and information was relayed quickly to the appropriate people. No fuss, just quiet competence.
It was a wonderful example of how very well-trained they all are; we are well-served indeed! Thank you to all these people, so many of whom are volunteers.

Aleda Johnson,
