Paramedic Services Week Launch

May 24, 2016

It was a great morning at #LordSelkirkSchool for the launch of #ParamedicServicesWeek
Important safety messages were shared with the hundreds of students who were able to tour various stations inside & outside the school.
We are proud to have been part of such a positive event that showcases the great teamwork we have on the streets of Winnipeg every day.

Pictured below is the crew from 8 station touring their emergency medical and fire fighting tools, as well as displays from our 911 dispatchers, the MIRV, front line ambulance, PACER bike team, and a children’s safety talk station.
