Toronto Paramedic Services Week
May 22 – 28, 2016
WHEREAS Toronto’s Paramedic Services provide life-saving public service to City residents and visitors 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
It is important to raise the public’s awareness of the enormous contribution Toronto Paramedic Services’ staff, including paramedics, emergency medical dispatchers and operations support persons provide in a caring and compassionate manner, to those in need of pre-hospital emergency medical care. They offer assistance 800 times a day in Toronto.
Toronto Paramedic Services Week recognizes the contributions these public servants make to maintain a safe and healthy city for those who call 911 for help each day.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor John Tory, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim May 22 – 28, 2016 as “Toronto Paramedic Services Week” in the City of Toronto.
