Boundary Ambulance honors volunteers of year

Print Article

Boundary Ambulance hosted its annual members meeting on Saturday, Dec. 2. During the meeting Chief Jeff Lindsey announced the 2017 Volunteer of the Year as well as the 2017 Paramedic of the Year. Voting was split evenly between two members for Volunteer of the Year, with both Pam Hamilton (EMT-Advanced) and Mike Kralik (Driver/Operator) winning this award.

“Both Pam and Mike are very large contributors of time and talent to our agency. Many lives are owed to both of these fine people,” said Lindsey. “Mike drives our paramedic crews on transfers to other out of the area hospitals, some of them with critically ill and injured patients at all hours of the day and night and never complains.”

“He is always ready and available to help, which is critical in our small rural community, when a patient needs to go to a larger hospital for lifesaving treatment,” commented Lindsey. “Pam puts in the most time of any volunteer. She is on shift 4 sometimes 5 days a week working alongside the fulltime paramedics, running calls as well as helping out in any way she can”.

“Pam is the one that the Captains call when they need to cover a shift, because she will always be there. I can’t say enough about what she contributes to our agency,” said Lindsey.

Also announced was the winner of Paramedic of the Year. This went to Captain/Paramedic Kelly Halleman.

“Capt Halleman is in charge of Training and brings his outgoing personality to this position which works well with our staff members,” Lindsey said. “Kelly does a great job in working with other partner agencies as well going above and beyond when dealing with our patients that may need additional help”.

In addition to Capt Halleman’s role as training officer, he also serves as the Rescue Coordinator and a Community Paramedic. “We are very fortunate to have these dedicated members serving our community,” said Lindsey.
