Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - MEMORY LANE -

A Dum­fries am­bu­lance driver was the first in south west Scot­land to qual­ify for the dual role in am­bu­lance driv­ing and first-aid in­struc­tion.

An­drew Pater­son was pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate by chief am­bu­lance of­fi­cer for Dum­fries and Gal­loway and Ayr­shire and Ar­ran, Mr Jack Tier­ney to mark the achieve­ment.

It meant that any train­ing on new equip­ment in the re­gion could be su­per­vised by Mr Pater­son in­stead of am­bu­lance­men hav­ing to go to train­ing school in Glas­gow as they then had to do.
