As we close out this year’s Paramedic Services Week, we wanted to extend our thanks and gratitude to all of our Paramedic Professionals. We consider ourselves fortunate to have the team of professionals we have here in Moose Jaw, and that’s not by chance. It’s the result of the high level of dedication and commitment to the profession, the organization, the public and yourselves as paramedics you all display; for that you should be PROUD.
While this year is certainly different in how we recognize the paramedic profession with many limitations, it is no less important. You have received many well-deserved accolades from many organizations nationally, provincially and locally but most importantly…the public at large. We have always believed it is important to take a moment and accept the many “thanks” that are directed toward you for the selfless work you do. While sometimes paramedics think we are “just doing our jobs” and no thanks is necessary, yet it absolutely is! The importance and risks of your profession are highlighted so much more this year amidst a pandemic. The display of efforts that have been demonstrated, as so much more is asked of you in the recent months is credible to you all! You deserve the thanks!
While the world and society is different today than yesterday and more so likely tomorrow, even how we perform our duties today and forward is changing, what has NOT changed is WHAT we do and WHY we do it. Always try to remember this. Stay focused, stay informed and stay healthy; physically AND mentally.
Your profession is hard some days. Your profession has risks. Remember though, you have the equipment to make the difference, tools to keep you safe and there are more good days than bad. Focus on the good days, lots to remember!
We truly believe there is no more gratifying of an opportunity to be fortunate enough to help someone in their time of need.
The public TRUSTS paramedics. The public trusts YOU. Your LEADERSHIP trusts you.
Take care of yourself. Take care of each other.
What YOU do MATTERS.
LAUGH when you can. CRY when tragedy occurs. Ask for HELP when you need to.
Continue to be KIND. SHARE.
Be PROUD as a paramedic professional and the service you provide, WE ARE.
