Thank you po­lice, fire­fight­ers, paramedics

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: First re­spon­ders

I felt I had to write a note to say “thanks” to the po­lice, fire­fight­ers, paramedics for the hard work they do.

Ev­ery pro­fes­sion has bad ap­ples who ruin it for the other hard-work­ing in­di­vid­u­als.

I wit­nessed just that re­cently on my way to work when a per­son on a bike had been hit by a ve­hi­cle. I watched a po­lice of­fi­cer lie down on the ground to com­fort the in­jured per­son, staying there un­til the am­bu­lance/paramedics ar­rived. Let’s face it, th­ese peo­ple see and do things the nor­mal av­er­age cit­i­zen wouldn’t want to see or do. If you’re one of those first re­spon­ders and read­ing this, thank you! You so de­serve it. Carol Fields, Hamil­ton
