It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Peel Regional Paramedic Service Advanced Care Paramedic Martin Wood on January 31, 2016. Please see the Peel Paramedic Association’s media release: MartinWood_Release.

Martin was the paramedic that paramedics thrived to emulate. Smart, smooth and compassionate. His compassion was felt by all who came in contact with him.

It has been a very trying week for all at Peel Regional Paramedic Services and all through the tight-knit paramedic community as we come to terms with this great loss.

As Advanced Care Paramedic Kendall Barrett-Smith put it on the GoFundMe page that has been created to help Martin’s family: “We’re raising funds for our good friend, colleague and mentor. Martin was an inspiration and prime example of an outstanding paramedic to all of his friends and coworkers. He would have been the first to step up for a friend. Let’s step up for Martin and help out his family. ” Click here if you wish to help the family of the man who helped so many in their time of need.
