In the QEII Halifax Infirmary ER there used to be two ambulance pictures, one was a horse and ambulance wagon and the other was a Cadillac ambulance hearse. The Nova Scotia Paramedic Society is concerned because to this day no one has been able to tell us who were these ambulance attendants or why the pictures were taken. When the new ER was built these pictures were taken down and were never replaced.
When you walk the halls of many paramedic stations in our region you will see the pictures of paramedics from our generation. The Nova Scotia Paramedic society is concerned that with time we will forget who they are? Will people ask and contemplate their origins? Our society fears that many things about our story as Nova Scotia paramedics will be forgotten and or have already been lost. The Nova Scotia Paramedic wants to protect our stories and preserve our medical legacy.
With support from the Dalhousie Medical Historical Society, The Dr. Ron Steward Paramedic Foundation, The National EMS Museum of America, Emergency Health Services, Emergency Medical Care Inc., and many others leaders in our profession, we do have a chance to build an EMS museum that can showcase our profession. With your help the vision for the Nova Scotia Paramedic Society will be realized.
