Severe road conditions led to a near-miss involving four Calgary EMS paramedics, while they were travelling back from Edmonton on Thursday.
The quartet, including the union president, stopped at a motor-vehicle collision involving some of their EMS counterparts to tend to the situation, when a large truck lost control and went into the ditch, stopping just feet away from the off-duty paramedics.
The paramedics quickly assessed the situation and determined their safety was in jeopardy and moved the three people involved in the collision to a safe location in their two personal vehicles.
They later met up with responding emergency crews to treat the patients.
