Jade Calvin joined Bell Ambulance as a Cadet in 2017. She obtained her EMT-Basic license, and since then, she has continued to push herself professionally by earning her EMD Dispatch certification, Paramedic license, and most recently her Critical Care Paramedic license.  She has been willing to help out when needed to fill empty spots in the schedule as well as becoming a go to when it comes to signing up for community outreach events and activities. 

Jade has proven to be a leader during her shift, and many of her coworkers look to her for guidance and advice when reviewing calls.  Her coworkers know that they can come to Jade for a laugh or two when things are tough.  She provides excellent care for the patients whom she serves. 

In August of 2021, Jade was contacted to help cover and fill spots up for an assignment up at Fort McCoy as Bell Ambulance was providing assistance and ALS coverage for the people from Afghanistan.  Though there were many who went up there to help, Jade was able to adjust her schedule to be up at Fort McCoy every two weeks from August until services were no longer needed in February, and was able to be a part of this assignment from beginning to end.  Many peoples’ lives were suddenly disrupted and put in disarray, and Jade showed a large amount of care and compassion as she worked with them. 

Because of her positive impact on the community, her coworkers, and her patients, Jade has been nominated to be a PAAW Star of Life.
