Grateful for quick response to 911 call

On July 15, at 6 a.m., I called 911 to report an upturned small vehicle in the middle of the Stillaguamish River. Within minutes, an Oso Fire Department volunteer appeared and then Snohomish County Sheriff officials, a rescue boat and many other volunteers.

Two rescue workers waded into center of river and pulled out a child’s toy car. We were all relieved it was not a river tragedy. When I profusely apologized, they reassured me that I made the right call as they’ve have experienced similar tragedies with children involved. The entire rescue team was responsive and professional and kind I am thankful for their service.

I feel safe knowing they respond to many emergency and unknown situations.
