Sullivan Mine Anniversary
May 17, 2017
Attention: All Members CUPE Local 873
Re: Sullivan Mine Anniversary
Today is the eleven (11) year anniversary of the tragic loss of Paramedics Kim Weitzel and Shawn Currier
Kim, 44, and Shawn, 21, both from the Kimberley Station, were responding to a call inside a water-testing shed at the decommissioned Sullivan Mine. Both Kim and Shawn, along with two mine employees, were overcome by a low oxygen atmosphere. All four tragically lost their lives.
Please take a moment today to remember Kim, Shawn and the 8 other Paramedics who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
Sincerely,The Provincial Executive Board Ambulance Paramedics & Emergency Dispatchers of BC CUPE Local 873
