Re. “2 searches, 2 rescues” (The Tri-City News, Aug. 3).
On Sunday, July 31, my daughter and I headed out for a short hike part way up the Munroe and Dennett Lake Trail on Burke Mountain. When we were coming back down, my daughter slipped and fell, breaking her ankle. I quickly realized we needed to call 911 and luckily we had cell service.
There are not enough words to describe or convey our gratitude and appreciation for the members of Coquitlam Fire Rescue, Coquitlam Search and Rescue and the BC Ambulance Service.
Their professionalism, expertise, kindness and compassion were truly amazing. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for being so good at what they do.
