Respected and admired Lincolnshire paramedic retires
One of our paramedics in Lincolnshire has begun his well-earned retirement after 34 years’ of saving lives on the 999 frontline.
John Cannon, 64, who lives in Louth, joined the ambulance service when he was 30-years-old. He transitioned from a career in accounting.
Unlike the weeks of intensive training and university courses that our frontline colleagues experience now, John did a few weeks of initial training in Leicestershire followed by a two-week driving course, before he was thrown into the action.
