"I think we were very fortunate not to have anything serious happen while the emergency services were closed," stated Stacey Strykowski, Preeceville and District Health Action Committee.

"Every day that was closed, put our residents in danger. I’d like to thank all the residents for voicing their concerns. The Facebook group of rural people certainly helped reverse these decisions. The government and the SHA saw that this decision was premature and unwarranted," she concluded.
