Springwater Township / April 13, 2016 – The Township of Springwater extends its congratulations to Julia Young-Williams and Springwater resident, Steve Prophet, who placed first in the Advanced Care Paramedics division at the National Paramedic Competition.

The event takes place in Durham each year and challenges teams of paramedics to put their medical knowledge and skills to the test. This year’s competition took place at the Durham College, Oshawa Campus on April 9.

The national competition consists of a combination of scenario based activities and academic evaluations. The scenarios challenge paramedics in a variety of simulated emergencies.

“It is always exciting to see our residents place at the top of their field,” says Mayor Bill French. “Knowing that we have the best of the best taking care of our citizens, provides reassurance that our community is well looked after. We are proud of Julia and Steve and congratulate them on their success at the competition.”
