Anonymous1499AnonymousI was home alone with my napping baby and started feeling dizzy and lightheaded like I might faint, panicked and called 911 for the first time ever in my life. From the dispatcher to the EMT first responders to the mobile cardiac unit, every single person (even through covid PPE) was compassionate and caring. I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude for their humanity and professionalism.16/09/2020 5:18:03 AM
Sarah1498SarahThe two paramedics who came to our home to tend to our 3 year old this summer were compassionate and helpful. Facing an unusual/extreme pain reaction from our toddler was made worse by the stress and isolation of these COVID times - and your support was so appreciated. Thank you! My daughter still plays with the teddy bear you gave her :)09/09/2020 5:49:43 AM
Anonymous1497AnonymousI was suddenly taken ill in Sooke on August 30. The ambulance that I was transported in was apparently one that specialized in incidents involving cardiac issues. All of the paramedics that attended were wonderful and calming. The paramedic that rode in the back with me was so professional and yet down to earth. He made me forget how frightened I was and I really appreciated his kindness.01/09/2020 3:24:10 AM
Lorie1496LorieThank you so much for your compassion and words of comfort. I may not have seemed as grateful yesterday, due to not being able to be with my son; but it felt better knowing you could empathize with me as a mother. You went over and beyond to advocate for me to be with him. Covid has not made things easier for anyone, especially you frontline workers. Thank you for risking your life to save my son’s♥.28/08/2020 3:43:17 PM
Anonymous1495AnonymousI'm so very grateful and thankful to the paramedics who have taken my elderly mother to the hospital several times over the years. They have always been so compassionate, caring and patient with her. Thank you!16/08/2020 12:23:31 AM
Michelle1494MichelleI was hit by a car in downtown Vancouver 3 days before my wedding. Paramedics came to the scene even though I didn’t really want ambulance attendance. You convinced me to get in the back by saying “you might as well, we have air conditioning and it’s hot out here”’. So I did. And then you sat with me quietly while I cried. I’ll never forget. Thank you. 14/08/2020 8:15:06 PM
Sue1493SueI'm grateful to paramedics for their care several times over the last couple of years. They were amazing, knowledgeable and made me feel safe. I want to use my word count to state that until we need you, we don't know how much we need you. You need to be recognized and paid accordingly.14/08/2020 3:29:31 PM
Kristin1492KristinI fractured and dislocated my shoulder at Kekuli Park near Vernon in May. I fell at the feet of an off-duty paramedic by the name of Robbie. My kids were distressed and I was in pain. Robbie out my arm in a sling, even gave me his water, and comforted my kids so my husband could figure out how to get the car down. I would love to thank him.13/08/2020 4:22:46 PM
Anna1491AnnaI would like to thank the dispatcher, firefighter and paramedics. I had a tachycardia episode in March and the dispatcher my mom talked to notified both fire and ambulance. Alex the firefighter, who came within five minutes, helped monitor me and gave oxygen until the paramedics came. They were all so calm and patient. Thank you all!12/08/2020 1:47:35 AM
