My husband, Griff Mangan, has spent most of his adult life involved in emergency medical services. He teaches first aid, trains EMT's, and is an instructor trainer. Through his association with the Wayne County New York Red Cross and the Finger Lakes Regional Emergency Medical Service Council, I have had the opportunity to meet many of these hard-working and selfless individuals. I don't know any of the statistics but I can't even imagine the number of lives saved in this country by the extraordinary services of our EMS professionals and volunteers.
So, we would like to express our sadness over the loss of the flight crew, Tuesday night, in a helicopter crash over the Laguna Madre, off South Padre Island. Our sympathies go to their families.
