  1. Thank you for making this site available for all of us to view, reflect and respect. Are we able to order Mr. Klein’s book as BCAS members? As a member of the BCAS Provincial Paramedic Honour Guard, I would also very much like to have a copy of the posted of the memorial. I will look for your email at your convenience.
    Thank you for all that you do.

  2. Steven posted the following on the contacts page. If anyone can help please send photos to the webmaster@bcas10-7.com
    Hello I am a 1/24 scale model builder. My latest project will be a 1923 Ford Model \”T\” Ambulance I want to replicate, as close as possible an ambulance that might have been in service in that time period I am hoping to get some detailed photos of the ambulance, both exterior and interior of the ambulance Some good shots of the engine would also help. So if you can help me in any way.

  3. From Bobs daughter
    Good morning, I am Bob Knezacky\’s daughter and I am writing you to say Thank you for the lovely letter that my Uncle William Knezacky received from Lynn Klien. It brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart reading this lovely letter and seeing how much my Dad impacted the BCAS. I am hoping to get a copy so that I can have it frames with his other service awards for my wall. As you know my dad dedicated his life to the service and I was always so proud of him and always will be. I always enjoyed attending the \”regatta weekends\” in Kelowna with him. My dad was and always will be my hero and I miss him more than words can say. I have my dads retired badge and I saw that you have window decals on your site, looks like only Members can purchase ? I was really hoping to get ( 4 ) if possible in honour and memory of my father. Again thank you for your letter and kind words to help us during our ( my ) time of mourning my dad.

  4. Is this the proper place to ask for a comment from the executive as to why they apparently do not support the drive to make the ambulance service an “essential service” as per this quote from the sCHNOOZE newsletter.

    “So far, the 10-7 Association (ambulance retirees) has not reacted at all to the dissolving of paramedic responsibilities in favour of the big city fire departments which John Heavener (a founding member of the Association) finds lamentable. He believes that “our organization should take a stand in this regard.” As for the political initiative by Joshua Henshaw that would see the ambulance become an essential service, (see December, 2016 issue of THE sNOOZE),the 10-7 has firmly slammed the door against helping that campaign. I fear that by not taking a position on issues of concern to their members, because they may be politically sensitive, the association risks remaining largely irrelevant.”

    It would seem that looking to the future of this association the new members joining up would perhaps have benefited from the success of this initiative therefore being better supported in their retirement years. IMHO

    PS. There are still a few copies of the photo history of the Paramedic Memorial (A Monumental Task) still available for $29.95 taxes included

  6. My name is Anne Henschel, my husband was Sean Henschel. He committed suicide May 30, 2016.
    I just watched the CBC documentary called After the Sirens, it has affected me more than I thought it would.
    Though Sean was never diagnosed officially with PTSD, the symptoms were all there.
    Not sure if this is the right forum to talk about this but felt that after the documentary, contact websites or phone numbers would have been great.
    Sean was a very proud member of the bc ambulance, but in the end felt very let down.
    Thank you for listening.
    Anne Henschel
