Give thanks to ambos during Ambulance Week

FRASER Coast residents have been urged to thank hard-working ambulance officers and volunteers during Ambulance Week this week.

Queensland Ambulance Service commissioner Russell Bowles said paramedics, communications staff, patient transport officers, clinical staff and volunteers went about their jobs in the service without expecting recognition or praise.

"Every day our staff and volunteers demonstrate bravery, composure and skill in challenging and often dangerous circumstances," he said.

"Our service leads the country in clinical care and paramedic training and is among the best in the world in providing state-of-the-art emergency care.

"These results are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our staff.
