"John is an excellent paramedic and a great ambassador," reads a statement from BC Emergency Health Services.

"He is an incredible mentor and team builder who never forgets what it's like to be just beginning your career as a paramedic. His focus has always been to build people up-as a driver preceptor, he makes new paramedics feel comfortable during what could be a very stressful and uncertain situation.

"John has also brought his commitment to environmental sustainability into the station, and is always the first to start a recycling program. He is trusted and respected by all those around him, and takes every opportunity to build coalitions with partners and advance the reputation of BCEHS."
