Toronto Paramedic Service will be holding a memorial for Paramedic Nancy Fouineteau at their headquarters on 4330 Dufferin Street, Toronto at 1400 hours on Friday, May 2, 2014. All Paramedics, Police, and Fire who wish to attend are requested to wear full dress uniforms.
Today is the inaugural National First Responders Day. Thank you to all Paramedics, Police Officers, and Firefighters for all their hard work everyday across Canada. Please take a moment to reflect on what they do and the lives saved.
April 29, 2014 Update: Two Peel Paramedics were treated for smoke inhalation and released the same day as the fire. Two Mississauga Firefighters are still in hospital at this time. Two have been discharged from hospital. One of the two is set to be discharged home in the coming days. The critically injured Firefighter has been upgraded from critical to non-life threatening and has undergone numerous surgeries in the past couple of days. Please keep them in your thoughts for a speedy recovery.
Our thoughts are with our colleagues at Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services and station 105 as they battle a fire at an industrial storage warehouse in Malton. News is coming to us that 4 firefighters have been injured, one critically. Peel Paramedics are proudly assisting our emergency service colleagues.
We will endeavor to bring more information as it is received.

We are pleased to announce that Chief Peter Dundas will be speaking on behalf of the board at the fall service CME this year. Having Mr. Dundas’ support underscores the value of the Fund for all Region of Peel Paramedic Service employees: medics, management and support staff alike.
We are a grassroots organization of paramedics and support staff. We have already gained significant support from over 220 members of our 500 member staff.
One of our working group members is learning to build this blog. We work in prehospital medicine; not so often with computers and blogs.
If you would like to help with this site, please get in touch with Brandon Wiedemann or any of the current Directors.
Thanks to all involved.
Our condolences to the ORNGE community after their loss of the crew from Attawapiskat.
Our fallen colleagues, Captain Don Filliter,First Officer Jacques Dupuy, Flight Paramedic Dustin Dagenais and Flight Paramedic Chris Snowball are never forgotten.
