Thank you, local EMTs, for helping my husband

Every minute counts when it comes to treating a stroke.

Recently our family experienced an event that required the emergency services of the Enumclaw Fire Department. EMTs Maryn and Lance responded to our 911 call quickly, assessed my husband and transported him to the hospital where it was confirmed he experienced a mild stroke.

Thanks to Maryn and Lance’s quick actions and correct assessment, my husband received the necessary treatment to mitigate the symptoms of the stroke. The ER doctors said with a stroke every minute treatment is delayed counts, so the quick and accurate assessment plus immediate delivery to the ER was critical.

Our family is grateful beyond words to the Enumclaw Fire Department emergency services and specifically Maryn and Lance.
