    Redefining the Golden Hour

    Great article, I am interested in the responses from the Military Medical community also. Thoughts from the civilian side, I must say that many life saving interventions that we are currently using in regards to trauma care come from Military medicine. Most recently, modern bleed control...

    23 Oct 1969 - HMCS Kootenay (merged)

    I am aware she was sold to Mexico for use as an artificial reef but have recently been told that she may not have been sunk yet. These veterans may be interested in bringing her back to Canada.

    A friend of mine who served on the Kootenay during the explosion along with some others are now interested in her location and the possibility of her recovery and return to Canada if she is still afloat. I am looking for any info on her and have encouraged them to join this forum. Thanks. Rob.

    Walts, posers & wannabes (merged)

    I was asked to take a look at this page. Don't recognize him but it doesn't mean he isn't a Toronto medic. Although under his history there is no mention of his education at a college offering the Paramedic program.

For those interested here is a link to the video of the service followed by a fly past at the end with piper John Lyndsay from the Ontario Paramedic pipes and drums.

    Advanced Care Paramedic ( ACP )

    Unfortunately not everyone can work in Toronto and have ACP fully covered. There is a big EMS world outside of Toronto. No offense. Some of our students are from outside the Province, others are paying for it on there own and work for services in Ontario. Others have had employers pay for the...

    HMCS Athabaskan

    Hello, I have read in a local media report here in Ontario that HMCS Athabaskan is in need of an urgent tow out of Lake Ontario and back to Halifax before the canal freezes over. I am curious as to why she cant proceed under her own power. The article didn't state why the tow was required. I...

It was signed by the cast members...
