Letter to the Editor: NorthStar not in parade

1 min read

The Wilton Blueberry Festival and parade were terrific as usual. Shannon Smith and the group did a fantastic job and we very much appreciate all the effort that went in to honoring the emergency services.

Regretfully, NorthStar EMS was not able to participate in the parade and we know it caused a few comments. NorthStar is committed to providing quality emergency and transport services to the area and that, quite simply, is what we were doing during the parade.

At the time, one local crew was on a critical patient transport to Boston, another on a local emergency call, another standing ready to take the next call, and another with an auto accident a little further north. Our NorthStar Bike Team did patrol the gathering and responded to several medical issues.

So, although we were not in the parade, we were very much in the community and we’re proud of it. Thank you again to all those who turned out to honor our profession.
