October’s been rockin’

October has been a very busy month for our EMS crews.

A few weeks ago, Leon, Joy and Sergey got 9 calls on a 6-hour evening shift, and with the back-up of Manny, were able to make patient contact on 8 of them. This includes 4 calls in sector at the same time.

Jacques has also had his hands full. One week he and Evara successfully OAM’d a 3-year-old child with a full airway obstruction. The very next week, with Sabrina and Kapil, a code patient was successfully resuscitated.

Sure, there have been some shut-outs too, as many of our stagiaires will sadly tell you. But every day, every shift… EMS volunteers save lives. It’s amazing to be part of this team of dedicated people. Keep it up!
