Two Burks Falls area Paramedics were recognized for their courage yesterday. Noah Parkin and Jason Bailey received the award for Paramedic Bravery yesterday at a ceremony at Queens Park.

In July in 2016 they jumped into the Magnetewan River to save a man who had not resurfaced after diving into the river.  They found the man, and got him to shore and began administering CPR.

Since 2016, 60 paramedics have been given the award.
