Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service salutes health care workers
WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service took to the streets Friday afternoon to salute healthcare and frontline workers amid the pandemic.
A parade of fire trucks headed down William Avenue, lights flashing and sirens blaring, in support of the workers at the Health Sciences Centre, and health care workers across Winnipeg.
"From one frontline partner to another: Thank you so much for your solidarity," the Health Sciences Centre tweeted Friday evening. "What a tribute to all healthcare staff."
Staff at the Victoria General Hospital also received a tribute from Winnipeg fire fighters Friday evening.
A row of about 10 emergency vehicles, including fire trucks and ambulances, took part in the salute to health care workers.
"Thank you to the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service for this wonderful siren salute," The Victoria General Hospital tweeted Friday.
