On Wednesday 24 July 2019, we will celebrate Thank a Paramedic Day – an annual opportunity for the community to show their appreciation for the hard work, care and compassion shown everyday by our Victorian paramedics.
Our fearless paramedics never expect to be thanked for the job they do. But it is truly wonderful to see Victorians come together on this special day to thank the emergency responders who make a significant difference in people’s lives.
We want to honour our paramedics who go above and beyond to provide exceptional patient care, often in highly emotional and time-critical circumstances.
Established in 2015, Thank a Paramedic Day gives patients, their families and friends the platform to share their heartfelt messages of thanks.
In 2018, over 700 messages of thanks and personal stories were shared by grateful Victorians.
If you have a heart-warming story to tell of how much a Victorian paramedic means to you, share your thanks social media* using #ThanksAmbos
