I am a part-time employee of the Grand County Emergency Medical Services department. I was on shift last Sat, Feb 25, and my partner and I decided to start our day with a delicious breakfast at the Moab Diner. As we sat there eating and discussing our plan for the day, a very kind gentleman approached us and thanked us for our service to the community — he also paid for our food.

Both of us were smiling from ear to ear from his thoughtful and kind gesture. It just made our day. We work as first responders because we are passionate about it and because we truly care — we care about the residents in our community and we care about the folks that visit our beautiful home.

So, I would like to thank you, Moab! Thank you for being the amazing community that you are and for your support of our EMS department. To the gentleman who approached us that morning, we are grateful and appreciative — God bless you, sir.
