Celebrating the faces of paramedicine
Paramedics Services Week is May 22 to 28.
Katie has been a Peel paramedic for 18 years. Having a good partner to depend on has allowed her to deliver the care the Peel community needs.
"It's really helpful on stressful calls because you almost know what the other person is going to do without even saying anything," Katie says. "But at the same time if something goes differently than expected it's ok to openly talk about it."
Katie explains that Peel paramedics don't just assist people in emergency situations, but they also provide them with information about services available in the community.
As we celebrate Paramedic Services Week, we're thankful for Katie and all the other faces of paramedicine.
