At dinner time last week, I had a fall in my home. I was shaken and couldn’t get up, so my husband called 911. The River Forest Fire Department responded quickly. They questioned me, ran several tests, and got me up off the floor. They were very efficient and oh so nice!

There seemed to be no serious damage, but on their recommendation, I did go to Rush Oak Park to get checked out. Lights and sirens all the way!

The ER nurses were equally solicitous. 

Final verdict: I received a tetanus shot for a scrape on my elbow and they sent me on my way.

Thanks, guys, you were great!
