Words cannot express the awe and gratitude we feel towards John Ross and all those who donated in his honour.

We would like to extend a very special thank you to the Pembina stations; Drayton Valley, Mameo and Breton for their incredible generosity. These stations chose to have their Christmas funds donated to the Paramedic Pay if Forward Award in the amount of $600.00 in John’s memory. Because of John’s thoughtful and selfless nature, we had an astonishing $1141.00 donated from the friends and family of this great man. I am still left speechless when I think about John’s wishes and support.

As some of you may know, the Paramedic Pay it Forward Award has been working on bringing our profession a new award in recognition of our outstanding mentors. It is with great honour we announce the “John Ross Paramedic Mentor Award”, as a memorial for our dear friend, colleague and mentor.

This award will be available to all levels of Paramedicine in Alberta; EMR’s, EMT -A’s, and Paramedics. We will annually deliver one $500.00 award to our professions mentors, with our inaugural selection to made June 1, 2016.
