I would like to take this time to say, job well done, Marquis!
On Monday, Oct. 21, at approximately 5 a.m., a fire occurred at the Marquis Rehab and Nursing facility.
My husband is at this facility and getting the call in the early morning hours that a fire has broken out you think only the worst while your heart sinks. I was expecting chaos when I arrived.
When I approached the Marquis, I saw the staff; well trained, working together, taking care of their patients and moving them about to safety. I was amazed at the calmness and expertise they showed in such a difficult situation. Seeing this made me feel even better about having my loved one here and knowing that he is in good hands.
Also, thank you to all those in the community who helped in what could have been a very chaotic situation. As always thanks to our mayor, fire department, police department, EMS workers and volunteers. You are the best.
