A very special thank you to South Lake Tahoe Fire and Rescue Engine One and ambulance / paramedic personnel for the prompt response to my husband’s recent medical emergency on Oct. 17 in the early-morning hours. Your professionalism and constant attention to my husband and myself surely made the difference in his quick recovery. Your transport to Barton and subsequent transport to Kaiser in Roseville were much needed and appreciated. It’s nice to know that we frequent visitors to the lake can count on wonderful emergency response teams. Special thanks also to emergency room personnel at Barton. A more serious tragedy was averted because of your care. Barton ER rocks!
