LaRonge, Saskatchewan is home base for one of the largest emergency response catchments in Canada, representing the northern quarter of the province’s total area, most of it complete wilderness. With 84% of the service’s clients being Aboriginal, it makes sense that many of its members are, too.

LaRonge’s EMTs will do whatever it takes to respond to an emergency, and take any means necessary to get to a patient, whether it means hiking ten kilometers through dense muskeg, or maneuvering pitted logging roads, or even flying.

But flying has its risks, as EMT’s Jodie Stamp and Kristen McKenzie know all too well. When Kristen offered to take over a med-evac call for Jodie at shift change, neither could have known the flight was doomed, and would ultimately cost them a member of their crew.

EMTs see a lot of tragedy in their line of work, but a lot of joy, too, as these phenomenal women demonstrate on a daily basis.
