I just received your 2018 Annual Community Report. It was excellent. It is clearly the finest piece of public accountability that I have seen in may years. Hats of top those who authorized it. Hats off to those who executed it!

Best Wishes, Phil & Joy McMullin

Thank you so much for your quick help where my daughter Amber was concerned- greatly appreciated!! You truly do great work- our first time visiting Vashon and surely will be etched in our minds at how wonderful everyone was who looked at and treated my daughters neck injury.

On December 13th two medics came to my house because my son was vomiting and having chest pains. They were very nice and very comforting and luckily my son was doing well enough I was able to take him to Children's Hospital myself after the medics set up priority loading for me on the ferry. My son had been throwing up almost daily for 4 weeks and one of the medics had asked that I contact them and let them know what the doctors found out if they come up with a diagnosis. It turns out after some x-rays that he was severely constipated. We began treating that and he's about 75% better. The prognosis is a couple more weeks and he'll be 100% back to normal. Who would've thought something so simple could cause so many problems! Thanks again for being there for us during a rough time!

On 4:00 PM Tuesday, November 22, 2016 my husband Barry called NeighborCare clinic to have his blood pressure checked as he is a heart patient and was not feeling "right". Once at the clinic he was told to go to the fire station to have his blood pressure checked. At the fire station we were greeted by a group of concerned, professional, efficient staff. They quickly checked his vitals and found his blood pressure to be 200/96. They then discussed the option of being taken by ambulance to the hospital. Barry quickly decided that the hospital was the way to go. Barry was put in the aid car , the crew notified the ferry and in a matter of minutes we were on the ferry. An ambulance was waiting when we arrived on Fauntleroy. After several hours in the ER Barry was released and all is well. Our heartfelt thanks to the crew at VIFR for their skill and calming manner. Vashon is so fortunate to have VIFR. Sincerely, Sharon and Barry Briskman

I wish you had a "pay pal" type link so I could, RIGHT NOW while I am thinking about it, make a donation in memory of Milt Kranjcevich. For that matter (don't know why I've not thought of it before) I would also donate in memory of my Dad, Warren Fordyce, who was a member and EMT for about 20 years until they moved away from The Island in 1984. Now I have to remember to write and mail a check. Hope I do.

Thanks to the professional fire fighters / medics who came to our house and treated my husband Bruce who needed to be transferred to Virginia Mason Hospital after having a stroke. The team worked on him to stabilize him and I am forever grateful. All turned out well and having the quick service of 911 ambulance and the medics taking him to the hospital was key to his recovery. Jason and team you are the best.

With Gratitude, Debi cekosh

One year ago today, the crew on shift took a call on Westside Hwy and gave me a second chance at life. Thank you. I will continue to use that gift well.

On Oct 28 my mom fell outside of Zombies restaurant hitting her head on the concrete sidewalk. Thank you to all who responded so quickly, with a special thanks to Tom, Derrick and the driver who transported her to Tacoma General.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for you taking such good care of my precious mom. She has recovered well.
Keep up the fantastic work as you really do make a difference everyday.
Thanks again,

Just a note to thank you all for the great work you do. A year ago my husband was attended to by your fine EMT's. They were calm, caring and well informed. Your website is a fine resource for the folks on Vashon. Keep up the good work!
