Happy ‘Thank-A-Paramedic-Day’ to these @ambulancevic Career Heroes who save lives every damn day. For your compassion, professionalism and dedication to your craft – all of us here in Victoria, offer you a heartfelt thanks. At Essendon airfield AV site we celebrated in style with three families- all of whom had experienced life saving service from Paramedics in the past year, and wanted to show their appreciation. 
These thankful recipients included twins Wilbur & Colby who were delivered by paramedics on the side of the Calder Highway when mum went into early labour. And though Wilbur was delivered experiencing heart problems – he was critically resuscitated by the attending paramedic, Scott, before reaching hospital to go on to a full recovery. 
Today the boys turned one- adding momentum and emotion to this celebration of thanks. Days like this I’m so grateful, as a Director, to be part of a world class service like Ambulance Victoria that locates best care practice at the core of its charter.  
Congrats team AV and happy birthday Wilbur & Colby. As I said to the twins parents, no pressure whatsoever on what career path these boys might want to pursue…?
