Joe1557JoeFernie medics saved my life in December 2014. I hit a semi head-on in Crows Nest Pass. When they got me to the hospital I was unstable and couldn't be saved so they called STARS and got me to Calgary, where I woke up a day and a half later. Fast forward to today and I'm currently finishing the primary care paramedic program. I am excited to pay it forward and save a life like mine was saved years ago. Thank you so much.28/02/2021 2:30:37 PM
Brian and Micheline1555Brian and MichelineThank you for the excellent service provided this morning, particularly the recommendation that my wife go to the hospital to get checked out rather than assume the problem was heart fibrillation, since it could be an infection, which is what it turned out to be. My wife is home now and taking appropriate care.28/02/2021 1:00:31 AM
Kelly1554KellyThank you to the BCEHS man who was folding up the blankets and buckles on an ambulance bed in the ER around 3pm on Feb 24. All you did was help me get my shoes, help me into a wheelchair, and check to see if my ride had arrived. You made me feel less abandoned. Like someone cared about the woman with vertigo. Small actions can really make a huge difference. Many deep thanks.25/02/2021 8:58:17 PM
Anonymous1553AnonymousA non-emergency ambulance call was made when I could not assist my housemate to a hospital bed in our living room. Diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, she went from independence to needing total support in days. The paramedic assessed the situation and her, perfectly. Arms around his neck and singing, they danced there. This difficult transition was laughter-filled and respectful. Grateful thanks!24/02/2021 1:03:16 AM
Matt1552MattAt about 1:00am, my mom fell ill from a bad UTI. This led to high fever, vomiting and incredible pain. She requested EHS via Lifeline. When EHS arrived on scene, they were extremely respectful, attentive and caring. Their presence there helped calm my mother and made her feel at ease. Laurel and Marika and the dispatcher, Joseph, deserve recognition for their service. 10/10!22/02/2021 8:22:02 PM
Brian1551BrianI was involved in a single vehicle rollover when I went off the road due to no visibility after being passed by another vehicle, between Cranbrook and Canal Flats at about 4am. If it wasn’t for your help I would have been alone in the middle of nowhere. I would if possible like to thank you for what you did for me. 19/02/2021 2:37:49 PM
Florence1550FlorenceI truly appreciate the kind and professional care of the first responders who assisted me early on the morning of February 14th. The firefighters arrived so quickly, and spread some non-slip pellets on our icy driveway. Then not much later ambulance attendants arrived and attended to my needs and brought me to the hospital. Your efforts are truly appreciated.19/02/2021 12:11:31 AM

Rani1548RaniFrom the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the two emergency responders who rescued me from my apartment when I was pantless and incapacitated with a shoulder injury. They took the utmost level of care and kindness and professionalism. They took such good care of me, made sure my keys, wallet and phone were secure, and stayed with me until I was checked in safely at the hospital. THANK YOU.08/02/2021 11:58:33 PM
