Carla1269CarlaI wish I knew the names of everyone who showed up at my house in Abbotsford. There were several: paramedics, police, fire department. I went into ventricular fibrillation. They were very professional and did their job perfectly. Thank you - I owe you my life!11/01/2019 7:05:43 PM
John1268JohnOn Sunday evening, two attendants arrived at our home. I was on the floor with a dislocated shoulder. The compassion, competency and courtesy of the young lady and man cannot be overstated. From our home to VGH ER, they showed great professionalism. Thank you both, very much.02/01/2019 3:06:08 PM
Michou1267MichouThank you to Colette and her partner on Christmas Eve in Richmond BC. You are my heroes who walked through the door when I was panicking as I tended to my son who had a febrile seizure. Thank you for your compassion and reassurance. You were a big hug that I needed, knowing that it was going to be okay.28/12/2018 3:03:43 PM
Sherry1266SherryI would like to thank the two beautiful lady paramedics that showed up at my Cloverdale home without bells and whistles early Boxing Day morning. They were kind, caring, professional... but most importantly compassionate! Love the lady in the warrior scarf who has worked in healthcare for 28 years❤. Keep up the amazing work!28/12/2018 6:58:39 AM
Adrienne1264AdrienneA sincere thank you to Justin and his partner in Vancouver. I wish I could properly thank you in person, but I’m glad this page exists so I can tell you I appreciated how understanding you were. Major respect for your ability to make me feel comfortable in an unexpected situation by talking about travel (the heat packs helped too). You're amazing at what you do, thank you.22/12/2018 6:25:54 AM
Tyson1263TysonA 911 dispatcher saved my dad’s life. When my dad collapsed with a cardiac arrest, the dispatcher talked me through performing CPR until the paramedics arrived. My dad owes his life to the first responders and in particular that dispatcher. I would love to find him and thank him if possible! 22/12/2018 3:28:55 AM
Alyse 1261Alyse To the dispatcher and to paramedics that got me to the hospital alive in November 2015, I don’t know your names, but thank you for driving and working fast. Without you I wouldn’t have celebrated that Christmas or be celebrating yet another one with my girls. I appreciate your work wholeheartedly and now work as a nurse to give back myself. 19/12/2018 6:18:54 PM
Raymond1259RaymondI want to thank paramedics James and Natalie. They responded very fast and helped my aunt. Within seconds they were able to treat her. James also put in an IV in one try, making my aunt as comfortable as he could, while other people would need to try a few times. While at the hospital Natalie made sure my aunt had everything she needed. Very professional. Thank you.18/12/2018 8:07:49 AM
Sherry1258SherryI was in a head-on collision. I had a broken ankle and had to be transferred to Kamloops. Ben, I want to thank you for making me feel so at ease with the situation at hand. You made that trip to Kamloops fly by. You are fantastic! I wish you great success for 2019 and beyond. You rock!!17/12/2018 12:33:41 AM
