Thanks for the excellent care

I am pleased to send this note of thanks to and recognition of the wonderful assistance I received at Copper Mountain where we visited from Maryland last weekend. Through no intentional fault on anyone’s part, my husband and I got separated for a concerning period of time. The fellow in charge of operations (Brian?), Steve, head of security and Mark from the search and rescue team were all so professional, helpful and compassionate during a very stressful time until my hubby was located. The good Lord took care of me through you good men and I am one grateful wife. God bless you all and keep up the fine service.

I wanted to say thanks

On Wednesday, June 26, my mother, Helen, went into respiratory arrest and was rescued by a remarkable team from the Summit County Ambulance Service and Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue.

They were respectful and professional and calmed my mother’s fears immediately. She was transported to the Summit County Medical Center and was met by a team of caring and wonderful nurses and doctors who, I believe, saved her life.

After she was stabilized, she was sent to St. Anthony’s Central in Denver via Flight For Life. I want to say to the crew on the helicopter that day how very thankful I am that it was you who took my precious cargo on to Denver, I was told that you guys are the best of the best. I apologize I don’t remember all of your names, but I know I will never forget your faces.

My mother is doing much better but will have to remain in Denver as her lungs can no longer tolerate this elevation. We both feel that without your help she would not be with us today. Words cannot express our sincere thank you to everyone associated with my mother’s rescue, we will never forget your kindness. Gold bless you all!
