“This is so exciting and so well-deserved,” said Sean Cinkant, a paramedic profiled in the series. “The film crew from Lark Productions worked really hard and did a great job capturing what we do,” he said. “I’ve even had a couple of strangers come up to me on the street after recognizing me, to shake my hand and say thank-you.”
Tara Berger, a member of the BCEHS dispatch staff in Vancouver who is also featured in the show is thrilled to be part of an award-winning educational series. “It’s been a huge, wonderful compliment being a face of dispatch,” she said. “Lark Productions and Knowledge Network did an incredible job portraying what employees here do every day to care for their patients.”
