THANK A PARAMEDIC DAY
Written on the 28 October 2015 by Kevin ConollyKevin Conolly MP is calling on the Riverstone community to thank paramedics for their service. Thank a paramedic day will be held this year on Thursday 5 November.
First held in 2008, Thank a Paramedic Day is a publicly celebrated awareness day to recognise the work of NSW Ambulance paramedics.Paramedics are role models within our community, who we look upon with the highest admiration.
They are there for us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
"Days like today recognise the importance of frontline emergency care and the trauma faced so regularly by our first responders."When the community needs you, you are there, and for that, we can only say thank you." Mr Conolly said.
NSW Ambulance is an integral part of the State's health care system, providing emergency pre-hospital care and transport, medical retrieval services, and also a significant proportion of non-emergency patient transport services to the community.Last year, NSW paramedics undertook over 1.1 million emergency and non-emergency responses. This is equivalent to an ambulance responding to someone across NSW every 28 seconds.
Members of the public who wish to thank staff from NSW Ambulance are welcome to via the Riverstone electorate office, or alternatively by writing directly to NSW Ambulance State Headquarters.Letters are provided directly to staff, with a copy placed on their personal file.
