Mississauga Fire Update

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.

Upcoming service CME

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.

Baby Steps

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.
