TV and EMTs doing good work

Re July 26 letter by Paul Archer, “Get the storm warnings off my screen” and July 24 letter by Karyn Foley, “Local EMTs have me worried”

Recently, during a golf tournament on TV, the storm weather map was on the lower left side of the screen and it blocked the ball going into the hole. We called the TV station and asked if they could move the map to the upper left side of the screen and within 10 minutes, it was done. I would like to thank the stations for doing so right away.

On July Fourth, after playing golf for three straight days in the high heat and humidity I passed out and friends called 911. Within a very short time, the Murrells Inlet Rescue squad arrived and took care of the situation. Even though I drank two bottles of Gatorade and two bottles of water, the heat did its job on me and my blood pressure dropped to a dangerous low level and with the EMTs professional manner, I was able to be released from the hospital that evening. All our EMTs deserve a big thank you for all the emergencies that they take care of.
