Fernie heroes

This month I yet again had my eyes opened to another service here in Fernie that I knew very little about and had previously never personally come across. Which, considering the service, to a certain extent, is a good thing. However, this month I discovered that as a community, we are in very safe hands, twenty-seven pairs of hands in fact, all passionate about serving this community and beyond. I met with Unit Chief Blake Elford from the Fernie Ambulance Service to find out more about him and his twenty-seven unsung heroes.

How does the BC Ambulance Service operate?

April’s heroes, in a slightly tedious-link sort of way, stem from pizza. Pizza being utterly delicious must surely result in some pretty special heroes. This month is also the month of all things green, so it seemed fitting to highlight some special green heroes. I found some in the form of Dawn Deydey and Megan Walsh, who over the past six years have developed the green initiative, beyondrecycling.ca, into the fantastic and hands-on educational program it is today.
