Launch and Proclamation of 2014 Paramedic Week

EVENT: Launch of Paramedic Week: May 18 to 24, 2014

DATE: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

TIME: 11 a.m.

You are invited to join community partners in emergency care for the launch of Paramedic Week, May 18 to 24, in the City of Greater Sudbury.

Mayor Marianne Matichuk will be in attendance to deliver the proclamation for the week. 

Paramedics will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to demonstrate the various types of equipment used.

For the first time in Greater Sudbury, members of the media are being offered the opportunity to step into the driver’s seat of an ambulance and try their hand at maneuvering through an obstacle course. Media may also wish to ‘become the patient’ and ride in the back of the ambulance. 

Members of the media interested in the one of a kind experience of driving an ambulance are asked to confirm their attendance before Friday, May 16, 2014. A valid driver license is required to participate. Please RSVP to the media contact below.
