While his wife was visiting her sister in rural Teller County, Sue began to show signs of a stroke. The family called 911 right away and an UPRAD ambulance arrived within a few minutes. The UPRAD paramedic identified a life-threatening stroke and ordered a helicopter. While transporting Sue to the landing zone, the UPRAD paramedic provided care to the patient.
“If it was not for the ambulance paramedics, she would be dead. My wife was in a very dark place before they arrived”.
