Kudos to the Traer Ambulance Service! What must go through a person's mind when suddenly becoming ill late at night, knowing they need help?
This is what happened recently to a Traer resident late on or about November 17. The Traer Ambulance Service was called and responded promptly. With their medical skill and knowledge, the patient was made as comfortable as possible while on their way to a Waterloo hospital. This person relayed to me what skilled and caring EMT personnel were on board and how they helped ease the symptoms and anxious moments.
The Traer Community is very fortunate to have the Traer Ambulance Service with its combination of career/volunteer EMTS and drivers available providing full-time EMT service under Iowa rules.
So Hats off to this "Top-Notch" community service. Traer residents can sleep well at night knowing their local ambulance crew is awake and ready to respond regardless of the hour.
The name of the resident is withheld in this article at their request but wanted to relay their thanks for such kind compassionate care.
