Carisa1228CarisaKevin and Laura were both amazing paramedics. My senior client fell in the HandyDART bus in August. They were gentle, patient, and kind while providing reassurance to my anxious client. They went above and beyond what their job requires them to do.18/09/2018 8:48:46 PM
Ronald1227RonaldThree times in April and May I had to call 911. I thank the dispatchers and ambulance personnel who got me to the Royal Jubilee Hospital after the Oak Bay fire department resuscitated me with oxygen. I am recovering from a new strain of pneumonia and had hoped to write earlier to say thanks, but at age 87 my recovery is SLOW. You are wonderful!11/09/2018 11:55:38 PM
Sherry1226SherryA heartfelt thank you to John (paramedic) and the unnamed driver of the ambulance that transported me to Ft. St. John Hospital on June 21,'18, following a motorcycle wreck 95 miles north of the city. I cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of me on that long painful ride. My partner often tells people that if you are going to wreck your bike, do it in Canada - the people are wonderful!10/09/2018 8:54:14 PM
Carol-Ann1225Carol-AnnI'm a paramedic, and last night we had a patient with whom we could not communicate due to a language barrier. I want to give a huge shout-out to the dispatcher who happened to speak and write the language we needed. With the help of technology and an amazing dispatcher, we got to the bottom of it all. Love the amazing teamwork that goes on daily and nightly! Thank you!10/09/2018 2:07:57 AM
Vj1224VjMy elderly mother had many calls to the ambulance service this past year. The paramedics didn't treat her like a bothersome old woman but were calm, thorough and reassuring. Paramedics, our unsung group of heroes, deserve better pay and working conditions. Where would we be without them? I wish to donate to a fund that assists paramedics in a time of need or to their children's camp.05/09/2018 11:06:29 PM
Christina1223ChristinaIt has been two and a half months since a stroke flattened me on a BC ferry. It was the calm and soothing voice of a wonderful paramedic by the name of Sue who kept me going until arriving at the hospital. I understand that it was a lot closer call then I would like to think, so thank you to Sue and the other quiet paramedic who must have been driving the ambulance who got me to safety! THANK YOU!03/09/2018 8:50:48 PM
Elizabeth1222ElizabethThank you to the Victoria EMS ambulance staff who arrived so quickly and were so gentle & kind when a skateboarder sent me flying onto a street in James Bay. I now know the meaning of road rash. This happened a couple of years ago, but my "thank you" and appreciation are no less sincere. You are amazing people.02/09/2018 11:49:45 PM
Vickie1221VickieIn January of 2012, I suffered a sudden cardiac arrest in my apartment. Thankfully, my husband was able to start CPR until fire and rescue, then the paramedics arrived. They revived me and got me to VGH where I spent 9 days in an induced coma. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of the people who helped to save my life that day and I am forever grateful to them. 02/09/2018 7:29:03 PM
Lisa Best1220Lisa BestI was at Victoria General twice this week. While walking past the ER entrance, I noticed some female paramedics unloading a patient at emergency. I can't begin to imagine the stress & situations paramedics face daily. They were being very kind to the elderly person in need. I just wanted to tell you the empathy and professionalism you show to clients is noticed and appreciated.02/09/2018 5:32:45 PM
