Ambulance crew gets an assist

To the editor:

Earlier this month the Eagle Valley Ambulance transported a patient from Richland to St. Al’s Hospital in Baker City. After we were done in the hospital, we got in the ambulance to return home to Richland. But, when the ambulance was started, the air was not filling the suspension.  We drove very slow to two businesses in Baker City who had done prior work for us on the ambulance. But neither had the time or would have the time to help us on that day.

So we went over to Grumpy’s — JR Streifel came out to the ambulance to see what we needed. It was explained and without hesitation JR stopped what he was doing and immediately went to work to trace down the problem. JR had the ambulance fixed and the ambulance was back on the road in service in less than an hour. 

JR: Thank you for your time, your commitment and we just could not be more grateful for your expertise and care that we could continue to provide service in our area without delay.
