Tow truck drivers should be recognized
September 28, 2023
As a past paramedic/firefighter I want to acknowledge another first responder that is rarely recognized or thanked. Recently one of our county newspaper articles had a thank you given only to the police, fire, and ambulance. We do not seem to value our tow truck drivers. They too face the horrors of every bad accident scene; get called out at all hours of the night and work in the worst weather, longer than the other 1st responders.
More tow truck drivers are killed or injured every year on these calls than police or fire personnel. WHY? Because these brave heroes are usually left to finish...
