Hopefully this is something that none of us would ever have to use. I for one applaud them for starting this kind of service to the fans. In 2000, my wife and I were at Michigan for a race sitting low in turn one. It was an extremely hot day. An older fellow, to our left collapsed during the National Anthem. My wife, who is a RN, went over to aid this fellow while others went for help. It seemed like it took forever until the paramedics came to help. It sure would have been nice to have had a service like this then. I don't know what ever became of this individual but all I'm getting at is that I think that this is a good move & I hope that this service gets picked up by other tracks. :ter:

Yes, options like this are very nice to have.
