Farewell to John, Richard and Tony

Together they have completed 121 years service for Wellington Free Ambulance!

‹ News and Updates

The end of June saw three of our longest serving paramedics retire. John started with Wellington Free as a volunteer in 1988, Tony in 1971, and Richard joined in 1970.  They each have a cheeky story or two to tell from their time at Wellington Free but all said the thing they’ve loved most about the role is the opportunity, and privilege, to help others. 

Thanks Richard, John and Tony for your service to the people of our region.  You’ve made a big different to a lot of lives, including the paramedics you’ve mentored and coached during your time.  Your service as front line paramedics is an awesome achievement – congratulations and we wish you all the very best in your retirement.
