Helping those who help

Pat Emerson (right), manager of Craftsman Collision on Yale Road, shows volunteers with St. John Ambulance, Tina Murray, Ria Geluk and Richard Miller, the work that was done on their primary emergency vehicle. Craftsman donated their time and labour to refurbish and repair the vehicle, approximately an $8,000 job. The vehicle was completely repainted, body damage was repaired, and the undercarriage was reinforced. Prime Signs also helped out by donating the graphics. The Chilliwack branch of St. John Ambulance currently has 18 volunteer members. They are first-aid responders who attend events on a by-donation basis.
