The Saskatchewan Emergency Medical Services Association (SEMSA) is deeply saddened by the recent tragedy involving the families, athletes, and staff of the Humboldt Broncos Organization and community.
Our Association, on behalf of the membership offers its deepest condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their lives and continued prayers to individuals who continue to recover throughout this incomprehensible tragedy. No hockey family or community anywhere isn’t touched by the impact of this event.
We further would like to acknowledge all of the responding agencies involved in their respective and selfless responses to assisting those in need. Our prayers and support are with you all during this time and the level of professionalism that is displayed during these times is remarkable amongst such difficult circumstances that no one should have to witness.
In the depths of such loss there is evidence of many selfless acts of support and help from a bystander passing by to the volunteer medical first responder to the highly trained emergency personnel who put their lives second to those in need; Ground and Air Paramedics, Emergency Service Dispatchers, Fire and Police Services, ER Physicians and Nurses and so many more.
Our continued thoughts are with the families of those involved and in support of and with the emergency responding agencies of Nipawin, Tisdale and Melfort with support from multiple other agencies from across the province.
No one involved in this tragedy is alone, we stand together in support with everyone.
Steven Skoworodko, President of SEMSA
