Kudos to Summit County’s action heroes

Kudos to Summit’s Swift Water Rescue Team

In this season of Thanksgiving I would like to recognize and thank the Summit County Swift Water Rescue Team for their service during the September flooding along the Front Range. The Summit Daily front page photo showing the rescue of Suzanne Sophocles of Boulder by our Summit County team was close to my heart as Suzanne is the sister of a good friend who lives in North Carolina. To quote my friend, “It broke my heart to see my strong resourceful sister so upset and hurting. I will be eternally grateful to the Summit County team for rescuing her from her day and a half ordeal of water roiling all around her home.”

I believe both our Water Rescue Team and Mountain Rescue Team of volunteers share the mantra “Anywhere, Anytime, to help Anyone,” putting their own safety at risk to help others. How blessed we are to have these brave folks in our community!
