As­sis­tance ap­pre­ci­ated

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THIS let­ter is to thank the var­i­ous kind souls who came to as­sist us at the scene of the un­for­tu­nate bus tip over at Flames of the For­est on Fri­day night.

Im­me­di­ately af­ter the crash, many Flames of the For­est staff were on hand to as­sist the in­jured and shaken peo­ple as they es­caped the bus by the back win­dow and sev­eral con­tin­ued to be in at­ten­dance un­til all the pas­sen­gers were moved to ei­ther the Moss­man hospi­tal or to Cairns Base Hospi­tal - or to their re­spec­tive ho­tels.

We were thank­ful for their care and as­sis­tance.

The am­bu­lance staff ar­rived and started as­sess­ing in­juries and do­ing their won­der­ful job of re-as­sur­ing and as­sist­ing and despatch­ing the in­jured to hos­pi­tals.

The fire­men at the scene pro­vided as­sis­tance and lights, blan­kets etc. and pro­ceeded to do what­ever they could to be of prac­ti­cal help.

For­tu­nately we had not ex­pe­ri­enced a scene like this be­fore and hope never to do so again, but will have a greater re­spect for all the good folk who are trained for these sit­u­a­tions.

Not quite the night we had planned but thanks to all who helped.
