I was just thinking here….I have a challenge that I would like to put out to the community around us. For any one of you out there and here as well, that has been blessed with the service of the B.C. Ambulance and or the Fire Dept. And the hospital as well, why don’t we have a bit of fun for the price of a stamp and send them Thank you notes to read about how much we have appreciated there work and there rescue services to us and those among us.
It does not have to be anything fancy, just a piece of paper and a hand written note to them and the post office will deliver it to there box and they will know with great praise how much we have appreciated them. Think about the forest fires that the fire dept, took control of until the Forestry came in to take over with a bird dog leading the planes into the smoke of the fire, and helicopters and planes scooping water from maybe the lakes around us but also from maybe your pool. When they work they are saving us all from something traumatic and they deserve to know that they are appreciated and that we are thankful for there time, energy and work that can sometimes go on for hours on end. For instance, the high school burning down, Ambulance Paramedics recently came to my rescue and I am very graciously thankful for there help and there knowledge. Can we and will you do it…I know that I sure will.
Have fun, and just a simple thank you will do also if you don’t know what to say. I am sure the parents of the young boy burnt in the motor home fire yesterday, both services were required there and they responded very quickly to the needs of the family in a state of desperate feeling while they could not get there young son out, imagine the terror, here comes the fire department, the Paramedics and the doctors and nurses to say the least. Lets let them know how much we appreciate them. I know that I owe one thank you card to each of the three facilities from which they come. Lets give it a go, and, thank them from our hearts.
