26 December 1979
Thanks go to squads, police
To the editor:
As the year 1979 rapidly comes to a close, we as members of the emergency department of the Medical Center at Princeton would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all the area first aid squads and police departments in our service area.
In the emergency department, we witness daily the sacrifice, thoughtfulness and devotion of the members of the first aid squads. These people give both their time and energy at all hours of the day and night for emergency calls to help others.
The area police departments are most helpful and cooperative, not only
in returning patients to their homes but helping us get to work in severe weather. Many times they have gone to the home of a patient’s relative to notify them of hospitalization when they could not be reached by phone.
All of these things are above and beyond the call of duty, and though we may not say it at the time, we really appreciate your thoughtfulness. To the police of Princeton Borough and Township an extra special thanks for being here and responding to our calls for help so promptly.
To all of you, our best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.
The Emergency Department Staff
