I think we as #Paramedics in Canada can sometimes take our basic safety rights for granted. Watching the video in this blog has really hit home of the dangers paramedics and health care workers face while working in conflict areas. Please take moment to read this post and watch the video. The Red Cros and ICRC are doing great work around the world and yet they can still become targets!

Red Cross Talks

This week, the Canadian Red Cross and the ICRC are hosting a workshop bringing together experts to identify recommendations to ensure the safety of health facilities in times of conflict. As such, weโ€™ll be posting a blog post every day this week to help raise awareness about the need for healthcare workers to be protected in emergencies.

Ambulances, hospitals and medical personnel have been under threat or the target of violence in countries such as Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, and in other parts of the world affected by conflict or emergencies. When healthcare workers are in danger, the impact is also felt by those who need access to health care.

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), this is one of the most crucial yet overlooked humanitarian issues today. The Red Cross has launched the Health Care in Danger campaign to raise awareness on these issues and findโ€ฆ

Moved a couple of weights around the other day. Man itโ€™s hard to get my workout and running desire back again! I did get the chance to try out some @underarmourca RUSH gear that was sent to me! This shirt and tights felt amazing to put on and did not impact my range of motion at all. I could def feel the energy and heat being reflected back to me while I was working out. I did feel muscle soreness for a few days after but I attribute that to my lack of consistency more than anything! The fabric in this line is infused with minerals to reflect energy back into the body and improve performance similar to an infrared sauna. The science behind this says the minerals absorb the bodyโ€™s heat and converts it into infrared energy that is re-emitted back into the body. This then increases localized circulation which results in improved performance and recovery. Check out what others are saying and search up the hashtag #UARush! I love it and will now be exclusively using this for all my workouts and running! Now if I can just work on my motivation and consistency and will to get out! Lol. Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™m not alone with this? Have any of you had this problem?
Nothing beats the feeling of brand new @enertorglobal comfort insoles in my work boots! #insoles #teamenertor #foothealth
