President Peter Jurkovsky, on behalf of the Board of Directors, members and staff of Paramedics Australasia, offers sincere condolences to the family of a young paramedic who tragically died near Mackay yesterday morning, whilst responding to a Code-1 emergency.
The close and caring Queensland Ambulance Service family and their paramedic colleagues around Australia are devastated by this unfortunate loss of one of our own and we know that QAS will rally around family and friends and provide support and care around all those impacted. A truly sad day for paramedics and the community we serve.
If you need help at this time, please seek out the support services offered by QAS, or reach out to a mental health professional. It’s OK to say, “I’m not OK”.
