The John Ross Paramedic Mentor Award: One of our fellow colleagues, John Ross, believed in the Paramedic Pay it Forward Award vision. John was incredibly passionate and dedicated to Paramedicine as a frontline practitioner, supervisor and manager. On November 7, 2015, John Ross passed away after a battle with cancer.
In lieu of flowers and gifts, his specific wish was for all donations to be made to the Paramedic Pay it Forward Award. We felt it was of the utmost importance to have his mentoring legacy live on through the naming of our mentor award as the 'John Ross Paramedic Mentor Award'.
The John Ross Paramedic Mentor Award is a peer nominated award that recognizes practitioners that positively impact our profession in their role as mentors. The award is available to registered practitioners within Alberta (EMR, EMT-A, or EMT-P).
