Last Friday night, I had the opportunity as a physician to observe the Gloucester 911 response team manage a health care emergency from start to finish in the Annisquam Village Library. The police, firefighters, and EMTs approached that difficult case efficiently, thoughtfully, and knowledgeably. Their conclusion was effective, professional, and respectful. I hope you will share these observations because Gloucester residents should be aware of the great system and individuals out there ready to support them in need.
