The Nova Scotia Paramedic Society has a lot to celebrate this holiday season.
At the top of the list are the hundreds of paramedics who share our vision of building a museum to show case our history and the impact paramedics have on the daily lives of Nova Scotians.
I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve achieved together over the past year. The executive team for the NSPS has been busy working with HRM Planning and Infrastructure to help select a location to physically place our museum. This committee has been suggesting grants and programs to help fund and support this building. Currently, we have three potential sites in Halifax and one in rural Nova Scotia for review. Our conference committee has been speaking with Randy Mantooth from TV’s Emergency for our Fall 2014 conference at Atlantic Hotel in Halifax. We also saw progress on the restoration of a Nova Scotia Model-T Ford ambulance. The group has been meeting with a builder in Berwick that will be able to complete our restoration for the 100th anniversary of WWI in 2017. In 1917, this ambulance was commonly used by health professionals in Nova Scotia.
With your help, we would like to make 2014 even better.
Join us January 8th via conference call or in person in the EHS boardroom. This meeting is important to paramedics since it lays down the foundation and direction of the society’s goals. The NSPS will be meeting at Redstone in the EHS Boardroom. All paramedics past and present are welcome to attend.
