The Brant-Brantford Paramedic Service hopes everyone in the community will join them to celebrate Paramedic Services Week starting Sunday, May 22, 2022. This annual celebration highlights and recognizes the important role that paramedics play in keeping our communities healthy and safe.
“The Brant-Brantford Paramedic Service has an exceptional group of paramedics, dedicated to serving our citizens,” said Russell King, Chief of Brant-Brantford Paramedic Service. “Our team has a variety of roles all of which helps to keep our community safe. Our paramedics provide vital front-line health response to City and County residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are pleased to recognize our team during Paramedic Services Week, which gives us an opportunity to express our appreciation for the challenging work that they do, especially during the past 2-years of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
The theme of this year’s Paramedic Services Week will be “Faces of Paramedicine”.
“This job requires someone who is compassionate, highly skilled and knowledgeable. We know their job is often physically, emotionally and mentally challenging,” said Mayor Bailey. “Thank you to the Paramedic Services team for your commitment to providing the best service possible and to serve others when they are often at their lowest and most vulnerable points.”
“On behalf of the City of Brantford, I want to express my sincere gratitude to the Paramedic Services team for the essential services they provide to our community,” said Mayor Davis. “We recognize all the work the Paramedic Services team does that goes far beyond vital ambulance services, including, community education and additional programming and supports. We are grateful for your service.”
