The Paramedic Memorial Bell made its way to Bruce County last week.

After an earlier stop in Perth County, the bell visited the Bruce County Paramedic Services members in recognition of Canadian paramedics who have fallen in the line of duty or have lost their battle with PTSD and psychological injuries. The bell is making its way all across Ontario in lieu of the annual memorial held in Ottawa due to COVID-19.

Bruce County Paramedic Service employs a staff of about 100 Full-time and Part-time paramedics that provide pre-hospital care to citizens and visitors of Bruce County. For more information on the memorial bell at http://www.facebook.com/paramedicbell.
