Congratulations to EMS Director Stéphane Kallos who received his certification as a paramedic from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians–the organization that certifies emergency medical technicians in the United States. The paramedic certification is the highest one offered. This gives him the ability to work as a paramedic anywhere in the United States.

In the past several years Stéphane has used many of his vacation periods to travel to the United States where he worked in ambulances and did the required 1,478 hours of on-site paramedic work.

On behalf of the city council and staff, I congratulate Stéphane on this outstanding achievement, which is a great benefit to Côte Saint-Luc EMS and the people who are helped every day by our crews.

Félicitations à Stéphane Kallos, directeur des SMU, qui a reçu sa certification du National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, l’organisme qui homologue les techniciens médicaux d’urgence aux États-Unis. Il n’y a pas de certification paramédicale plus haute que celle obtenue par Stéphane. Ainsi, il pourra travailler comme paramédical n’importe où aux États-Unis.

Depuis quelques années, durant ses vacances, Stéphane se rendait aux États-Unis pour travailler à bord d’ambulances afin de compléter sur place 1 478 heures de travail paramédical obligatoire.

Au nom du conseil municipal et du personnel, je souhaite féliciter Stéphane pour son accomplissement exceptionnel, qui bénéficiera les SMU de Côte Saint-Luc et les individus aidés quotidiennement par nos équipes.
