Out and about!
We did very little fan fare about our acquisition of the new unit. The unit that we are tentatively dubbing “21” was actually a purchase that we didn’t intend to make. That being said, we are so happy now to have her in our fleet as our “absentee” unit. As mentioned before, she has been lent out to an emergency service who had an unfortunate incident with their truck. So far, unit “21” has responded to three emergency calls for service.
We hope that our units never have to be used for such a purpose but we are glad that when it is necessary, that there are people out there who will always answer the call and make good use of the truck while it is in their care.
We look forward to visiting “21” in her temporary digs in the next few days and will share pictures when we get back!
Happy March everyone!
I’m looking for an OFA 3 to do a job in ukiee tomorrow. Likely an overtime day!
Update: confirmed overtime day
TMS has been a bit on the silent side this month. Behind the scenes we have been hard at work. First, our owner, Eric, has been working in Alberta since February 3 getting trained to work on ambulance for Alberta Health Services. He is starting the last rotation of mentorship tomorrow and is excited to increase his experience.
Second, our staff have been setting up a brand new Website to help the world locate us and also to help our staff with scheduling.
Third, we have acquired a new ambulance to add to our fleet! This unit is still red but will be going to paint after she completes her first assignment. This unit will be in the Princeton area for the next year before returning to us for upgrades and integration to our fleet.
Lastly, we have managed to secure medical coverage for motocross Vancouver island! This is a major step for us as it increases our public visibility and it gets out medics out doing what they do best. Helping people in some of the most difficult terrain on the island!
Well, January has proven to be an interesting month, from storms to floods, everyone suffered in some way. TMS and her crews were happy to be out with crews making a difference during this time of need. Remember, TMS, Alpine First Aid, and Production Paramedics are all ready to provide your crew with superior service in three western provinces and all three territories in a moments notice.

2018 proved to be a great year. Our New Years goal was met, we have collaborated with many different agencies, and we have made a difference to some people in their time of need.
We want to recognize the collaboration of Odyssey Medical, Alpine First Aid Ltd, Production Paramedics Inc, BCEHS, and various St. John Ambulance brigades on Vancouver island. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to deliver such a superior product to our clients.
This New Year’s resoloution is to add one more music festival to our events this year.
If you are looking for coverage or looking to join our team please contact us any time!
All the best to everyone in 2019!
Wow! This has been a week for the books! We started this week helping St. John Ambulance and B.C. Housing move the residents of the tent city in Nanaimo into new temporary housing units and finished the week by helping a mine with an ambulance rental after theirs broke down. I can’t stress how awesome the TMS crew has been coming together for those in need. But for tonight we say goodnight from Princeton B.C.
A stable job right here on the island!
Super huge announcement!
Call us anytime to chat about getting your heart and stroke certifications
If anyone needs their ACLS or PALS course, or their BLS / CPR for their Alberta PCP renewal we now have a partnership with a provider for that on the Island. They can also now do any of the Heart and Stroke courses. Give me a call or send a message with any questions
The TMS crew here has been busy over the last few weeks working towards some new and exciting opportunities. We had made the new year resolution that TMS would foster and grow more contracts in BC, Alberta and the territories over the year. Today, TMS can confidently say that it has done just that. One of the people we really need to give credit to is Laura. Her tireless efforts over the last project has really helped put TMS on the map as a company that will overcome all odds to get the job done in amazing style.
Stay tuned for some more news over the next few weeks!
Well it was a bit of a haul for our newest member of the TMS fleet but this little guy has kept trucking!
Welcome home Unit 18 and night shift crews!
I am very proud of the crews that went out over the last few weeks. They have overcome all obstacles and come out looking like humble rockstars!
Could not have asked for a better team on this project. Ginger Ven Courtney Grayston Kent Gulliford
Unit 18 is making its way home! Thank god it is yellow and we can see it in all of that snow!
Anyone recognize this rockstar? She has been slogging through behind the scenes to make some of the events at TMS a major success. As the special event season starts to wind down and our trucks and crews come home, I want to take a moment to recognize the amazing efforts that Ashley Brand has made to make this year a success! Thank you very much for everything you have done. From logistics management to cleaning trucks you have really pulled off an amazing summer season.
I love you and can’t ask for a better partner in life! -Eric Brand

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
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.

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

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.
