In Danville, Pa. a young child had to get to a lifesaving medical procedure during a Winter snowstorm – and it took coordination between different agencies to get there.

State Police together with the Pa. National Guard and PennDOT managed to transport a 23-month-old child from Lehigh Valley Hospital-Pocono in East Stroudsburg to Geisinger Children’s Hospital in Danville.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said:

PennDOT led the way with a plow train, state police went with the group to make sure they were safe. The National Guard followed up to make sure that if anything happened they could help. And the local emergency responders and healthcare practitioners made sure the baby was safe while they made that trip,”

Pa. State Police posted about the positive operation on their Facebook page. The post reads in part: “The snow doesn’t stop us!”

What a great gesture!
