SAULT STE. MARIE -- Paramedics in Sault Ste. Marie organized a rally in this evening as a sign of support for the nurses and staff inside Sault Area Hospital during these challenging times.
Fifty vehicles drove around the building for approximately half an hour, honking their horns and blaring their sirens.
"Oh my god it’s so overwhelming it makes you want to cry," said Tammy Wade, a registered nurse who came outside in shock when she heard the noise. "We love the support that Sault Ste. Marie has been showing us. We had an Easter parade this afternoon. It’s overwhelming.”
Mary Casola is a paramedic and said it was important for her coworkers to organizer this event.
“Right now we are just celebrating and we want to show the nurses and all the healthcare workers at the Sault Area Hospital that we support them working during The COVID-19.”
The rally was supposed to last for roughly fifteen minutes but lasted twice as long.
