It is rare that a paramedic dies in the line of duty, but BC Ambulance lost two paramedics from the station in Tofino, BC, at the end of October, while they were returning from a call.

I was in attendance for the funeral services on behalf of Yukon Emergency Medical Services for these paramedics.

I would like to thank YEU/PSAC for their financial support for travel, and Department of Community Services, protective services, Yukon Emergency Medical Services branch for accommodations.

I would also like to thank Air North for the bereavement fare offered to me for travel to BC.

Although I was not related to the paramedics who had died, Air North still offered me the fare.
