Medevac life in the Canadian Arctic

Flight Paramedic Hugh Gilmour works in the furthest reaches of the Canadian Arctic, evacuating patients from remote communities to hospitals in southern Canada. He is also an amateur photographer and his often breathtaking photos provide a rare glimpse of his extraordinary job. “The people I get to meet, and the cultures and the places I get to see are amazing,” Gilmour told The WorldPost by email. “Not many Canadians have a chance to see these places.” Gilmour works as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic and Clinical Educator for Advanced Medical Solutions – Medic North which provides medical evacuations, or medevac, services, to Canada’s Northwest Territories and the Kitikmeot region.
