My story is about, Patrick Kline. He is a Captain with the Halifax Regional Fire Department and also a critical care Paramedic with the Capital District Health and a former Life Flight Paramedic.
Not only is he a first responder in his professional life but he is a first responder in his personal life. I have witnessed him on a airplane responding to a sick passenger, and watched his professionalism and calming nature to assist the patient and also at the same time calm and reassure the family.
Just last night he was about to play hockey when he responded to a man in a cardiac arrest on the bench. Today there is a 41 year old man alive due to the quick action of a born first responder.
