"Whatever humans have learned had to be learned as a consequence of only trial and error experience, humans have learned through mistakes."
What a treat today!
In the four years I have been a member, I have never had the opportunity to hear a member of the BC Ambulance Service speak...
This morning, we had Tony Fryer speak to us not as a member of Chilliwack Search and Rescue, but as an Advance Life Support Paramedic.
Interesting fact that Tony shared- it was our own Brian C that helped him to the path to become a Paramedic.
We also heard how closely Paramedics work with the Fire Department, Police, Doctors and Hospitals.
We heard how Chilliwack had over 20,000 calls last year with 6-8 Paramedics on each shift. Our ground ambulances travel more then 2 million kms a year. We heard about the challenge that our 'local' commute times cause.
When we got to ask questions, we learned that one day Tony got to be Superman to a little boy, and helped him cope with the situation at hand.
So we met a true Superman today!
Thank you Tony for all you do for our community!
See you next week,
