Andrea Lynn Thompson Paramedic Bursary

Andrea Lynn Thompson was an advanced air flight paramedic from Amherst, Nova Scotia who worked with EHS in Nova Scotia, and with Thunder Airlines in Ontario where she stayed until her untimely death. Andrea was loved, admired and respected for her knowledge, quest for learning, her ability to share that knowledge but mostly for her caring and loving ways. Andrea’s family were so humbled by the love and support that they received from her Paramedic families in Nova Scotia and Ontario that they chose to establish this bursary as a tangible way to help others – just as Andrea would have wanted.

Award value – $1000
