In 2002, Fulcher received a Bronze Bravery medal for her brave actions in treating patients after a devastating series of fires in the Blue Mountains.

& # 39; Always an extraordinary paramedic, Dearne showed a huge passion for delivering first-class care to every individual patient she encountered, & said the statement.

& We, and the community of Katoomba, are always indebted to Dearne's service. & # 39;

NSW Ambulance Commissioner Dominic Morgan said that Fulcher's colleagues were summoned to free her from the destroyed vehicle.

He described the fatal accident as a & # 39; very sad voice & # 39; for the NSW ambulance family.

& # 39; You can imagine that losing one of your own has a profound effect on paramedics that Dearne has worked with, & he said, Nine news reported.

& # 39; We had the privilege of catching up with a few of them last night and I am just so proud of everyone who came to her rescue in her greatest hour of need.

& # 39; Incredible professionals are needed to care for someone they love in the worst of circumstances, but they come to the occasion and do everything to save someone's life. & # 39;
