Subject: Statement from Chief Lane regarding WFD member who experienced a medical emergency while on duty

Statement from Chief John Lane, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service:

Early this morning, while attending a house fire, a Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) Captain suffered a serious medical event.

His crew members and other incoming fire, ambulance, and Medical Supervisor crews successfully provided emergency treatment at the scene.

He was transported to hospital where he remains in serious but stable condition.

Members from the WFPS Executive team and members from UFFW Local 867 are ensuring that the Captain and his family are fully supported.

I would like to thank the WFPS crews and Communications staff who were instrumental in ensuring their fellow WFPS member received the best care possible.

Thanks to their expertise and teamwork, we are optimistic for a positive outcome.
