Clearing the Way to Safety
When your wife’s health is in question, the last thing you need weighing on your mind is whether or not an ambulance can make it up your driveway in an emergency.
Sandy Pollard, lifelong Caroline County resident, won’t have to worry about that anymore.
As part of Rappahannock United Way’s Caroline County Day of Action, the overgrown bushes blocking his driveway were cut down by volunteers from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative. The clear path to his house now means easier access for the emergency squad if his wife suffers additional strokes or seizures.
“It’s a big relief,” said Pollard, a Veteran who has heart problems himself. “A couple of times the rescue squad couldn’t get in without doing damage to the vehicle. They did a marvelous job. I was overjoyed. It’s been bugging me for the last 2 or 3 years.”
Volunteers are such an important part of Rappahannock United Way. They make completing important projects like this in our community possible.
