Letter to the Editor: Thank you Rural Metro

Dear Men and Women of the San Tan Valley Rural Metro Fire Dept.,

Especially the firefighter's and paramedics who saved my husbands life on Good Friday morning, April xx, 2019.

My husband was very restless that morning. He could not get comfortable. He complained of both arms hurting. Finally, after trying to get him off his knees in front of the toilet bowl, where he was retching so violently, he said call 911. I did. Almost immediately the engine was outside my front door. They were here before I hung up the phone. The paramedics arrived right after. 

There were about 5 all together. 4 men and 1 woman. They went to work on my husband, who was having a heart attack. They all worked together to stabilize him and get him moved to the hospital. They were going to rush him to the heart hospital on Power Rd. however, he went into cardiac arrest. They then turned around and returned to the closest hospital, which was Banner, Ironwood. Thank goodness they called me to tell me they were taking him to Banner Ironwood, as I was heading to Power Road. From there they transferred him via helicopter to the heart hospital. He had arrested three times until he received a stint and a new lease on life. He suffered from what is called the widow maker where "60% die" but he lived!

I credit this to the professionals of Rural Metro of San Tan Valley. 

My sincere Thank you to all the men & woman who saved my husbands life.

You are the best!!!

Sincerely yours,
San Tan Valley, AZ 85140
