Thanks for help with difficult situation

Shortly before Christmas my husband suddenly and unexpectedly went into cardiac arrest.

I would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to all the dedicated people who helped to ensure our story had a happy ending.

A huge thank you to the dispatcher who took my frantic call, calmly talked my son through the basics of administering life-saving CPR, and then stayed on the line assisting and supporting him until the first responders arrived.

And a huge thank you to the Qualicum Beach firefighters and the paramedics who arrived so quickly, and worked so hard to revive my husband and transport him safely to Nanaimo hospital.

We are truly grateful to each of you for your knowledge, efficiency, professionalism, dedication and kindness.

We are so fortunate to have all of you working here in our community.
