Paramedics honour station chief, search & rescue legend

NORTH VANCOUVER - Hundreds of CUPE 873 ambulance paramedics joined the Celebration of Life ceremony Saturday for Tim Jones.  Jones died suddenly a week earlier of a heart attack at age 57.

Jones was an Advanced Life Support Paramedic for 32 years and was the Chief at Station 256 in North Vancouver.  He is known across the country for his decades of untiring dedication to North Shore Rescue and the thousands of successful rescues he organized for and took part in.

The Celebration of Life ceremony was preceded by a parade through North Vancouver that included ambulance paramedics, RCMP, and Search and Rescue teams.
