Carol1210CarolI fell while walking my dogs at the back of Elk Lake. I hit my head and was initially dazed, making it difficult for the dispatcher to determine where I was. I was tended to by two wonderful female paramedics, Melissa and Lisa(?) who had to walk in with their equipment. They were very kind and professional. I am so grateful for the wonderful care I received. Thank you.17/07/2018 9:47:07 PM
Robert1209RobertI was involved in a motor vehicle accident in 1997. At the scene of the accident I was rated a 3 on the Glasgow Coma Scale. I have always wanted to have the opportunity to personally thank the paramedics that were there on scene and helped to save my life. (BCEHS Communications will follow up to see if we can connect Robert with these paramedics).​06/07/2018 4:40:01 AM
Emil1206EmilI want to thank the two paramedics, Karl and Mitch, who took care of my dad when he was terminally ill and had a fall about four years ago, before I joined the BC Ambulance Service. They were so kind and reassuring, it made all the difference. My first time on car since becoming a primary care paramedic was with Karl and Mitch, who I hadn't seen since that night, so it was a very meaningful reunion for me.29/06/2018 9:20:39 PM
Allan1204AllanIn the early morning, a visiting guest urgently required medical assistance. A second guest was greatly helped by the dispatcher in determining the correct address. The paramedic teams also acted in the most professional and caring manner. He has now recovered and been released from hospital and is home. Thank you so much from all of us!26/06/2018 3:15:09 AM
Eleni and Emmanuel1203Eleni and EmmanuelWe want to say a huge thank you to the dispatcher that helped walk my husband through the very quick and unexpected home delivery of our baby. Especially for calling back after my husband hung up in the panic of it all. You were so professional in a high stress situation! We also want to thank Cy and Connor the paramedics that arrived after baby was born!25/06/2018 3:20:13 PM
Karen1202KarenYou came to my man's apartment yesterday. I want to thank the paramedics for being warm and kind and good and really listening to him. They were so good explaining to him what was going to happen. It made it so much easier at the hospital.22/06/2018 10:30:46 PM
Anonymous1201AnonymousI recently encountered a young woman who was in a horrific motor vehicle accident which her husband did not survive. She had massive injuries to her head, arm, leg and pelvis. It must have been devastating for all the emergency personnel. Fortunately she was transported to Vancouver and underwent surgery within hours. She expressed how grateful she was to everyone that made her life possible.20/06/2018 8:58:16 PM
James1199JamesI wish to thank the PCP/ACP paramedics who responded to my brother when he suffered a drowning accident. Your successful asystolic resuscitation allowed our family time to say goodbye and be with him when he died. Unfortunately he had been hypoxic for too long and his brain was unable to recover. Thank you.11/06/2018 11:01:00 PM
Steve and Christine1198Steve and ChristineI want to say thank you for the wonderful care you gave me at the RV resort when I was dehydrated and lying on the ground. I felt so safe and secure because of your professionalism and compassion. I received the best care ever in my lifetime. Thank you very much.11/06/2018 10:15:51 PM
