We have heard eloquent stories of the response from RUH in and @starsambulance to the @HumboldtBroncos tragedy. And it is inspiring. But I want you to think about happened BEFORE those men and boys got to the city, before they were met by trauma and ICU specialists.
First there were the bystanders, the people driving by, who called 911, who held bare hands on bleeding wounds, told the scared and injured “It’s going to be okay” when in their hearts they didn’t feel it would.
Then the formal first responders – EMS, police and fire. Remember in many parts of rural Canada firefighters are volunteers – accountants and plumbers and at-home-dads by day. Remember that at night a rural police force might have 4 officers covering 100 square km.
