Ellie1958EllieI called for an ambulance last Thursday for my friend, and two paramedics came and helped her get to the hospital. They did a great job taking her to the ambulance – the complex has many stairs, and they brought a chair to take her from the second floor of the house. My friend was too sick to thank the paramedics, so I am writing on her behalf. Thank you, and we appreciate the great work you do!12/06/2024 10:56:10 PM
Anonymous1956AnonymousI was at the emergency room for eating disorder complications, and I had a breakdown at the exit because my abusive partner refused to take me back home. Two paramedics took the time to calm me down and told me I deserve to be happy and feel safe. I'm grateful for their act of kindness when I was at rock bottom. A year later I'm happy to report that I left that relationship and I'm doing well with my mental health.12/06/2024 9:07:48 AM
Gordon1955GordonDespite being an Intensive Care Physician, I felt somewhat helpless when my neighbour became unstable at home. First firefighters arrived, and then two outstanding ambulance crews arrived in fast order. What a relief when Jason arrived with his Lifepack! Really appreciate everyone's exemplary, professional, and expedient care. 10/06/2024 4:51:22 AM
Kelsie1954KelsieOn May 31, my husband called 911. The dispatch operations centre was absolutely amazing on the phone, and both Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) arrived within minutes - we felt calm and reassured. The crews were beyond professional and efficient, getting me to Surrey Memorial Hospital where our baby girl arrived within 35 minutes - healthy and safe. As an emergency room nurse, I hated to have to make this call knowing how busy the system is. You guys do amazing work. Thankful for you all.09/06/2024 12:36:51 AM
Stan1953StanOn June 3, 2024, I had just had hip replacement day surgery and was at home. We noticed my incision was bleeding and became concerned to the point we called for an ambulance. The two paramedics, King and Erica, were so professional and amazing. We are fortunate to have these two professionals serving us. I was so grateful to them for their help and compassion. I just wanted to say thank you.07/06/2024 5:21:36 PM
Jackie1952JackieOn April 13 in Chilliwack, I had respiratory failure. I was sure I was going to die that night. I had just driven home from my job up North. I was so lucky to have such wonderful paramedics respond. The young man who helped me was so patient and kind and walked me through every step. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to you for saving my life. Forever grateful.05/06/2024 4:11:10 AM
Courtney1951CourtneyToday I was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital by two lovely paramedics. They made my experience far better with their fun attitudes and conversation. I have anxiety and it was scary having hit my head. Unfortunately, I’ve had many encounters with medical health professionals, and these two really stood out to me as some of the best. I consider myself lucky to have been cared for by them.01/06/2024 4:36:52 AM
Linda1950LindaMy sincere gratitude to Nanaimo paramedics Chris and Nick for helping me when I fell on my patio on April 23. You were so kind, patient, and professional. A big thank you to Chris who came back a week later when I had to go back to the hospital with shingles & a blood clot on my lung! You made me feel safe and less stressed.28/05/2024 7:12:56 PM
Deanna1949DeannaI can’t thank Paramedic Jeremy from Surrey enough. I glued my eyelashes shut (don’t ask), and not only did he assist in my discomfort, but he also had such a great sense of humour. It really calmed my nerves. I trusted that he knew what he was doing. I was sad when they had to leave me at the hospital. So grateful for him and his partner. Thankful for wonderful paramedics like them.23/05/2024 5:37:05 PM
