……And this time that someone was a citizen who was impressed to see a Cypress Creek EMS Paramedic stop and toss a football with some neighborhood kids.
Unbeknownst to the medic, the citizen took a several pictures and sent them to us with the following email message:
“Just wanted to send you all a few pics of one of your medics. Not sure who he is but, as I was driving through a neighborhood the other day I came across one of your medics out of the ambulance playing football with a minority group of kids. I stopped close by and watched they all laughed and joked, the kids were having a ball with him. It was extremely hot outside and he stayed professional and in uniform and played with all the kids up until it appeared they caught a call. This was phenomenal to see and I hope this medic gets the recognition he deserves.”
Our sincere thanks to the sender. We sent Paramedic Cody Short a copy of your email and your pictures. Obviously, he wasn’t looking for recognition and had no idea anyone was watching or taking pictures. This was just a case of Cody being Cody and a reminder to everyone in uniform that someone is always watching.
Cody is a great example of Cypress Creek’s continuing commitment to our community as we celebrate 40 years of service.
