Suzanne1724SuzanneTwice in April, fire truck and ambulance were dispatched to my home. The first time, I had a myocardial infarction and they got me to Royal Columbian in time to save my life. The paramedics and personnel were absolute rock stars, as were the heart surgeons at Royal Columbian. The second time, I learned about gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is my first casual thank you - I will write further. Thank you! You are angels.24/06/2022 4:27:21 PM
Dawn1723DawnOn May 19th, emergency personnel were called to my daughter's elementary school in Port Moody. She suffered a cardiac arrest. I want to thank the paramedics that responded so quickly and got her to RCH and then transported her and a team to Children's. You saved her. She is home because of all of you. There really are no words to express our gratitude but Thank You.21/06/2022 4:13:11 AM

Gesa1721GesaThe paramedics who attended to my mother on Jun 13/22 were fantastic. Many, many thanks to Randy, Adam & Matthew. They were kind, caring and comforting. They handled the call with professionalism and great knowledge. I can't say enough positive things about them other than to repeat that they were a great team and we are very fortunate to have them as paramedics.14/06/2022 5:39:19 PM
Ken1720KenOn June 12 in Nanaimo I placed a call to 911. My wife had ruptured a varicose vein. The lady on the other end answered immediately. After I explained what was happening she gave us clear, precise instructions of what to do while we wait for paramedics to arrive. Paramedics commented on the good job we did, all thanks to the 911 operator. We can't thank you enough.13/06/2022 8:25:39 PM
Gloria1719GloriaI called ahead because I was so nervous to use an ambulance for my mental health. The kindest man comforted me and sat inside with me till someone else was taking care of me. It's been almost 2 years and I'm still extremely grateful for such safe, calming and thoughtful paramedics. Thank you so, so much for that small part of your day that made a meaningful impact on me.10/06/2022 1:25:14 AM
