A Huron Township resident took to social media this week to show gratitude to members of the Huron Township Department of Public Safety who saved her life during an asthma attack.
Kristin Gambino, a resident of Trail Creek subdivision, publicly thanked the emergency personnel who saved her.
“Last night, I had a severe asthma attack. My wife Joelle had to call 911. The doctors said if we would have tried to drive me to the West Rd ER, only 5 minutes away, I would have died,” said Gambino in a Facebook post.
“From the bottom of our hearts, we want to give our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the responding Huron Twp. Officer (who was coincidentally patrolling our neighborhood, thank you) and the Huron Twp Fire/Rescue officers.”
Gambino said that if it wasn’t for the quick response from police and EMS, she might not be here today.
“Your quick-thinking, knowledge, and professionalism saved my life, and my family and I are forever grateful to you.”
Last week, members of the department were commended by Everette Robbins, director of public safety, for their response to another call, where police saved the life of a suicidal man.
