    Support our Paramedics

    Our healthcare system is a mess at the moment. Everything has been switched to free healthcare since the beginning of the year but EMS contracts have been all over the place. Our province wants to take over everything instead of leaving it up to each individual city.

    Everything is a disaster and no one knows what is going to happen. Our group put a video together that has been playing regularly on local stations to help do some public relations.

    A scary position to be in. This video is about Calgary EMS, 3/4 of the medics throughout that video I work with regularly.

I have had my life and the lives of many a friend and family member saved all thanks to ya'll. I don't know if it counts much but you have the support of this Texas girl. I wish you luck and hope everything works out for the best.

    Thank you. Like any job it has it's ups and downs. Our provincial government has been flipping things around and it's been stressful for a lot of us as we known very little about the situation long term.

    Appreciate the support.

    You have our support in NC also. We rely heavily on volunteer EMS and Fireman and they are all wonderful.
