Community, special event medical service and sub contractor to Alpine First Aid Ltd.

The trucks are looking grrrreat!!!!!

Monday started TMS on a new adventure and we are so excited to see what it will bring us.
We sent our ambulance(unit 37) along with our newly acquired Xterra (unit 18). The drive up was met with beautiful sun, surrounded by even better scenery. The units along with our crews will be spending the next few months on site near Osoyoos B.C

We’ve expanded!
Unit 18 is ready and has already rolled out.
Busy times ahead for this tough guy.

We sent a crew over to the Cultivate Festival on Gabriola Island this past weekend. The weather was great to start the weekend but turned a little smokey in the end. Luckily the weather change didn't put a damper on the spirit of the festival! Thank you Chris and Parker!

TMS was busy last weekend, sending a two woman crew to attend the brickyard beast 10k run on Gabriola Island. This year was the 7th year and a very special one honoring a fallen firefighter, Jay D. Who passed away while on duty earlier in the year. I have to say, that brickyard hill looked like a monster to run!

Things have been quite busy around here since the BC Summer Games, so our apologies for the delay.

Drum roll please 🥁🎉

Last week we had the opportunity to support the BC Summer Games in Cowichan. Our support totalled 23,000$ CAD in in kind donations with the deployment of three ambulances, 14 paramedics, first responders and one sprint car. It boggles my mind that six years ago this company was just a dream and now we have the opportunity to make a real difference in the safety and health of those we treat. - Eric Brand

Look what our manager Eric found while attending the BC Summer Games opening ceremony. Lots of inspiring speeches, dances, songs and even poetry for all of the volunteers and athletes competing in the games. Here's to a great start, hope everyone stays safe and most of all has fun!

DID YOU KNOW that TMS units have solar panels on their roofs?
This is a leftover from Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services making their units more eco friendly. We decided to keep them as they keep our batteries fully charged and allow us to use some small electronics while having the engine off. Contact us for more information.

Well we have been working on a new toy for the last few months. In cooperation with Saint John ambulance, Alpine First Aid and Odyssey Medical we have managed to find a home for and set up a small ambulance golf cart!
It looks small but believe us when we say she packs a punch!
Field trials are ongoing this week but so far we have been able to climb hills of 35 degrees with 4 grown men on board! This project would not have been possible without the help of the following companies: Production Paramedics Inc Rapid Response Industrial Group LTD Recreation Sport Carts

And now we wait...

We had a chance to get most of the vehicles together for pictures. We have our forestry inspection this week and then ready to go.
