  • Thanks for a job well done!

    I am really late in doing this but I feel that I would like to publicly thank some people who helped my in my time of need.

    About a month ago my partner and I were called to a local industrial facility for a medical aid call. A patient had fallen on a catwalk about 30-40 feet above ground level deep inside the plant and fractured her leg. We called for some assistance from the Pease ANG FD as we had to carry her in a stokes to remove her thru the plant and down several levels. While packaging the patient for transport some how a fiber optic cable near by had sustained an electrical charge and while I grabbed a metal railing for balance and bent over to pick up my radio the cable disharged thru my right fingers and passed thru me and out my left hand into the railing. Needless to say it hurt..alot..
    My partner called for a paramedic ambulance to trransport me and split the plant personnel and the Pease guys to tend to the previous patient and myself.I spent quite a while in the ER and the next day in the ICU as a precaution and I have since returned to full duty. I wanted to use this forum to publicly thank the following people for what they did for myself and my wife during this scary time.

    David Low FF/EMTI Newington NH FD
    Asst Chief Eddie Acres Pease NH ANG FD
    FF/EMT John Levesque Pease NH ANG FD
    FF/PM Russ Osgood Portsmouth NH FD
    FF/EMTI Scott Young Portsmouth NH FD
    Officer G. Scott Qualls Newington NH PD
    Dr. Don Albertson and the Portsmouth Hosp ED
    And my wife Carolyn for not demanding I quit the Fire Service immediately

    Thanks you!
