On Jan. 18, in the dark and in freezing temperatures, I was stranded in my car on Thouvenot Lane. I want to express my appreciation to both the Fairview Heights and O’Fallon Police dispatchers for coming to my aid. A special thank you to Tom Bleish of Clete’s Towning for changing my tire in the bitter cold, making sure I stayed warm and helping me get safely back on the roadway to get home.
Special thanks are also deserved to the Fairview Heights dispatcher I had talked to and was on her way home from work and saw I was still stranded. She stopped to see if I was OK and to make sure help was on the way. I am sorry I did not get her name as I so much appreciated her concern.
So nice to know we have such dedicated people in our police departments.
