To the Editor:
I would like to thank the Mattapoisett Police Department and responders for the quick and professional response to my emergency calls for my wife Annette. The care in treating and transporting her to the hospital was done with great care, gentleness, and awareness of her condition.
As the retired police chief of Mattapoisett, I can relate to the many hours of training these officers must complete to be able to provide this life-saving service to the town.
First, they must be certified as police officers and then be certified as an EMT and some as Paramedics and continue recertification and in-service training yearly, this also includes civilian responders.
Mattapoisett is very fortunate to have such qualified and dedicated officers to respond to such emergencies.
James F. Moran
Police Chief, Retired, Mattapoisett
