"Whats New"

Thank you to the McKittrick family for reaching out and sharing this amazing feedback with us, after their father’s incident in December.

“Two Coastal Core team members became my heroes that day. Jim Quigg and Garth Willis were only pulling in for their coffee break and we begged them for help. They came over and helped to assess my father and went straight on the phone to NIAS control to explain that we needed an emergency ambulance ASAP. They stayed with me and my father for around the hour it took for a paramedic and emergency ambulance crew to attend the scene. They tried their best to comfort my dad and help him in any way they could.

These two men are an absolute credit to your company. There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Jim for his compassion and professionalism that he showed to my father that day.

He wishes also to thank Jim personally as he held his hand and tried his best to keep him warm throughout. My father remembers his kindness and he is forever grateful for him.”
