Historical information resides in a vast array of sources. We have connected with professional from the Nova Scotia archive (including the National Archives) and who have conducted research across the country and around the world in a wide variety of archives, libraries, government offices, and private collections. Our team is working with experts to decipher the arcane systems used to organize historical records, effectively employ on-line resources, and who are helping us develop targeted Freedom of Information Act requests to systematically gather the available historical record.
Research Day October 14th, 2014
This workshop hosted by Dr. Ron Stewart, Andrea Robin of the NS Archives, and The Nova Scotia Paramedic Society will introduce paramedics to historical research at the NS Archives. We invite paramedics to explore the fundamentals of preserving records, collecting, and archiving our EMS history. This group of volunteers will be seeking out and extracting evidence from original archival records around pre-hospital history. The workshop will help people to understand EMS history and the role of health organizations, individuals, and movements in shaping that past. Knowledge of the past creates a better future. We hope to help foster and promote a sense of community and develop a strong paramedic archival team of researchers.
