Paramedics recognized for years of 'exemplary service'

Diamond and Diamond Personal Injury Lawyers have always recognized the importance of front-line workers in Ontario. Our first responders and front-line workers are the backbone of our society answering the call day in and day out. That is why we launched acampaign in which co-workers, friends and family can nominate front-line workers who have gone beyond the call of duty.

It is great to see others recognize the importance and service that these workers provide. Greater Sudbury recently awarded the Governor General’s Emergency Medical Services Exemplary Service Medal to four of the city’s paramedic service workers. The award is to honour the 20 years of service in the field of pre-hospital emergency medical service.

The 4 members of the Greater Sudbury Paramedic Service who received this award were:

-Paul Cook, Primary Care Paramedic;

-Brian Marsh, Advanced Care Paramedic;

-Gino St. Jean, Advanced Care Paramedic/ Platoon Training Officer;

-Tom Isaia, Commander of Education and Logistical Support.

According to Northernlife.ca:

“To be recognized in this way is a huge accomplishment for any paramedic,” said Tim Beadman, Chief of Fire and Paramedic Services. “I am extremely proud of Paul, Brian, Gino and Tom for their commitment to emergency care and their years of outstanding service to this community.”

The Governor General awards the Exemplary Service Medal for Emergency Medical Services professionals through its Canadian Honours System. The Exemplary Service Medal honours those who have performed their duties in an exemplary manner, characterized by the highest standards of good conduct, industry and efficiency. The medal is available to eligible professionals who have provided pre-hospital emergency medical service for at least 20 years.

To qualify, those nominated must have served at least 10 years on street level duty, placing their own lives and safety at risk to protect others.”
