Sorry, don't know them. Do they work with TEMS? I am a bit out of touch with a lot of the Ontario ones, have been in BC for the last 10-1/2 years.

George was my neighbour when I was a kid. He was an EMT from the 50s thru the early 90s here in Toronto. He passed away in the mid 90s.

Gerry is a recently retired dispatche, he was there better than 25 years. Karen's still there, been there 15+ years.

All very good friends of mine.. It was a shot in the dark. :)

Served 21 years in Naval Operations (Navy). Spent 6 of those years as a Radar Tech (272). Retired from the Navy in September of 1996. Rode from Dartmouth, NS to Daytona Beach in fall of '96. Attended AMI (American Motorcycle Institute), graduating 03 March 1997. Returned to NS and worked at Powertrend Cycles for the next 3 years.

Moved to Ottawa in June of 2000, but no shops were hiring. Got a position with Service Canada, providing IO services for the toll-free lines of: Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Canadian Coast Guard and Transport Canada's Office of Boating Safety.

Clocked off from that in July of 2010 while I recovered from my wreck, Returned to that same job (I love it...) in July of this year and still going strong.
