Thank You to our Paramedics

November 12, 2015


Thank a Paramedic Day was held recently and was originally launched in 2008 to give the community the opportunity to formally thank paramedics, ambulance officers and operational staff for the jobs they do on behalf of our community.

Federal Member for Fowler and Chief Opposition Whip, Chris Hayes MP spoke in Parliament and paid tribute to Paramedics and Ambulance Officers.

"Saying thank you to a Paramedic seems like such a small gesture when you consider they risk their lives every day in order to protect ours."

"Most of us leave for work each day and never give a thought to our safety, but spare a thought for your local Paramedics and Ambulance Officers who each day, place their lives at risk."

"The work they undertake is often unpredictable and in dangerous situations."

"To all the Paramedics, Ambulance Officers and operational staff, thank you for your invaluable service" Chris Hayes said.
