The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service graduated 14 primary care paramedic recruits on Friday.
Following a six-week orientation and training class, the recruits graduated during a ceremony at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre.
“I am pleased to welcome these 14 new paramedics into our Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service family,” said WFPS Chief John Lane.
“They are joining our team of highly skilled frontline staff providing round-the-clock emergency services to Winnipeg’s residents, visitors, and businesses. They will be part of the team there for Winnipeggers when disaster strikes or the unthinkable happens.”
Incoming primary care paramedic applicants must be licensed primary care paramedics in the Province of Manitoba and graduates of a recognized college.
