Forest City EMS
I am a rural resident in Winnebago County, this past
New Years’ Eve there was a terrible head on crash on our gravel
road. Ten young adults in two cars. All injured. The Forest City
sheriff dept and EMTs did a superior job on saving lives. I
think they should be recognized for job well done.
There were EMTs and ambulances from all the surrounding
towns. They all worked together. I do believe Forest City EMTs
took the lead but many made it happen. Kids were taken to Britt
Iowa Hospital, Mason City Iowa hospital, Iowa City and Rochester
MN. Some were life flighted but needed to be transferred to a
safe landing area.
In the dark of the night a miracle happened!! When they left
the crash site all were alive. Between all the blood and not
knowing for sure how many kids there were, finally they felt
If I had to guess many of the emergency people couldn’t get
the images out of theirs heads for quite some time. I feel like
all the people that night need a pat on the back for all they
did. I know if I was a parent of one of those kids I would want
them to be thanked.
Please consider everyone for efforts of the New Year's Eve
2019 crash in Winnebago County.
