To the Editor,

I recently had a very serious illness that required immediate response and intervention by trained and knowledgeable personnel. The care I received throughout this journey was top notch.

Many thanks to the Readsboro Fire Department medical team first responders Adam Codogni, Richard Codogni, and Arron Massari. This team arrived at my door promptly after of the 911 call, and were in constant contact, as to my condition with the North Adams ambulance team. Also thanks to the personnel at the Bennington emergency room for quickly assessing my situation and calling the Dartmouth Hitchcock air rescue helicopter. I had wonderful care at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

Without all the help from these dedicated professionals the outcome most likely would have been very different. Thanks to all.

Forrest Hicks
