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.
