Dear Members;

As we all make preparations and look forward to the long weekend approaching, please take a moment to remember Paramedics Kim Weitzel and Shawn Currier. 

Today marks the 6th year anniversary of the tragic loss of these dedicated paramedics from station 414, Kimberley.

While responding to a call inside a water-testing shed at the decommissioned Sullivan Mine. Shawn and Kim, along with two mine employees, were overcome by a low oxygen atmosphere. All four tragically lost their lives.

Please join us in remembering their sacrifice and the sacrifice of all other public safety professionals that have been lost in the line of duty.
