Remembering Theresa Bond – 31st Anniversary

Dear Members,

Today is the 31st anniversary of the tragic loss of Paramedic Unit Chief Theresa Bond.  
Theresa, 42, was the Unit Chief at the Atlin station in northwestern British Columbia when she died in a plane crash en route to a Unit Chief’s meeting in Smithers. Theresa joined the BCAS in 1980 and became the Unit Chief in Atlin in 1987.
Theresa’s anniversary comes just two days prior to the BC Fallen Paramedic Day ceremony, and we ask that you take a moment to remember Theresa and the nine other brothers and sisters that have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty to the people of British Columbia.

There is no time limit for grief, and although the intensity of emotions may lessen with time you may find the anniversary of a tragic event can evoke powerful memories and feelings.  We would like to remind members that the Peer Critical Incident Stress Management Team is available 24/7 by pager at 1-855-969-4321.
