Thursday, fellow first responders escorted Doug back home, and their chief says it was a huge morale boost for the crew.

“Everybody’s home now, which we couldn’t ask for much more,” said Otsego County EMS Chief Jon Deming. “They’re much better, because there were times we were on a constant roller coaster with their health.”

Deming says his team is so thankful to the many prayers and well wishes from the community through this tough time.
