A tribute to Roland Furber

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Roland Furber on 4 February 2013. Roland, who was the President of the College of Paramedics, an Honorary Fellow of the College and had been the College's inaugural Chief Executive, had courageously fought ill-health over recent years but despite that, had still managed to drive round the coastline of England, Wales, and Scotland in the spring of 2012. That journey alone personified Roland. It had required months of planning and needed the bottomless reserves of determination, that we all knew he had, to undertake such a challenge on his own. Roland kept his followers up to date with daily blogs which can still be viewed at rolandsramble. wordpress.com, a record which has been converted into a book.
