I'm glad Hobart's EMTs were still able to serve me

It's ironic when concerns become realities, especially during a raging debate about privatizing Hobart's emergency response personnel, but that's what happened when I needed EMTs at my home for an immediate call.

We've been pressuring this mayor and his administration to keep our EMTs because of their professionalism and commitment to our community. We don't want privatization. There are other places to cut the budget first.

As luck would have it I'm thankful the mayor's State of the City address was recent and Station 2 was open for political appearances. That got me to the hospital much quicker than if it weren't. The care I received from our own EMTs was beyond reproach.

I will be ever thankful. Their actions confirm the reason this city needs you.

- Larry Brown, Hobart
