What a night last week in Southern Minnesota. A night of multiple motor vehicle accidents and the need for immediate medical emergency responses. The Rochester Post Bulletin had the time line recently:

• At 3:21 p.m., a tour bus carrying 22 people crashes on Interstate 90, killing two people and injuring 20.

• At 5:15 p.m., a school bus carrying 22 students from Wabasha-Kellogg High School collided with a car on U.S. 63 North in Rochester, injuring eight students and seriously injuring the car’s driver and passenger.

• Minutes later, an ambulance that was headed to the scene of the school bus crash was involved in a four-vehicle accident on Second Street Southwest. Two people were injured and had to be extricated from their vehicles.

• About 7:30 p.m. at Church of the Savior in southeast Rochester, a vehicle struck a pedestrian, then slammed into the church.

Four separate significance incidents, within four hours, all of which required quick responses. There was a need for police, sheriffs, troopers, firefighters, ambulance crews and helicopter personnel. There also the vital requirement of hospital and emergency room personnel . What a test for even a much larger area. It sounds like the test was not only met , but that it was exceeded in it’s expectations.

I often talk to clients that will point out the difference that the emergency personal made. When I get the chance I thank these individuals for their past and future service. Hopefully, everyone will do that.

    Mike, this is excellent stuff. As a member of the Armed Forces, I appreciate the danger that these folks endure on a daily basis. It is a shame that some parts of popular culture tend to degrade these heroes. Hip-hop music and culture is especially derogatory of law enforcement. Don't get me wrong, there are police that overstep the bounds but we as a culture need to rally behind these heroes in uniform.

    I totally agree, it is important to thank those that put themselves in harms way. They wear the uniform and each day protect what we each hold dear. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. And Thank You for your service commitment.
