Letter to Editor: Thanks to NB Emergency Responders

To the Heroes of the N. B. Emergency Squad from Bill Rider

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stepped in to help save my life on April 23, 2017 at the Ten Pin Lanes in North Baltimore, Ohio.

I will always be eternally grateful to the men and women, who knew exactly what to do, and happened to be there during my desperate time of need.

A very special Thanks goes out to Andy Allison, Dave Meggitt, Jim Stewart and Lisa Frost, I was told by Dr. Gerschutz, that these people literally saved my life.

I also want to Thank the N. B. EMS squad for the care they gave me en route to the hospital. Dr. Gerschutz was very impressed with the N. B. EMS Squad, especially the off duty personnel.

It is because of their immediate reactions, that I am here in great health, with no heart damage, to enjoy my wonderful family and all my friends, which were a lot more than I ever realized.

It is with a grateful heart that I want to commend the N. B. EMS for a wonderful job and for such dedicated people.

Sincerely and with deepest Thanks,

Bill Rider

  1. Every time I try to write something, I break down in tears and nothing sounds right. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for saving my dad’s life. Not only do I not know what I would have done or how I would have continued to function day in and day out knowing he wasn’t around, but I can’t even fathom how I would have explained the situation to 5 little girls whose world literally revolves around him. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!

  3. I know God is GREAT! He put the right people at the right time to save a life!
    Thank God you’re ok, Bill and can look around to see the beauty life, family and
    friends have to offer!
    We have amazing people in NB and this is proof of that.

  4. I too am so grateful that Bill was in the right place at the right time with the right people. Thank you all so much. You crunched him up a bit but kept him around for us who will always be eternally grateful. Was so not ready to give up cousin Bill!! Love him!!

  5. Twenty-one years ago the EMS squad made a life-saving decision to air-lift my son, Jeff, following an accident, rather than transport by ambulance and that decision saved his life. The people that responded to my brother’s situation may not have been the same people that responded then, but their training, dedication and quick response again saved a life. Thank you to all of those men and women that take the time to become life-saving individuals to care for the community. This also includes our fire and police.
