Paul Swain, BC Ambulance Service’s Area Director for the Interior had the honour of opening two new stations, one in Winlaw and one in Nakusp’s Emergency Services Building. Swain was impressed with the facilities in Nakusp, and was very happy that both stations would supply paramedics with a place to rest, train and clean up after calls.

The mayors of both Nakusp and New Denver were in attendance at the Nakusp station opening. Nakusp mayor Karen Hamling cut the ribbon and thanked the local ambulance personnel for their dedication. She also thanked the Fire Department and Search and Rescue, saying that without their co-operation, the Emergency Service Building would not have become a reality.

New Denver mayor Anne Bunka attended both stations’ openings and told The Arrow Lakes News it was important to support and thank New Denver, Nakusp and Winlaw area ambulance crews because all three service the area.
