Paramedics to demonstrate advanced emergency medical interventions during CNE's Toronto Paramedic Services Day
As part of Toronto Paramedic Services Day at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), Toronto paramedics will demonstrate advanced medical emergency interventions to the public visiting Paramedic Station #35 on the CNE grounds on Thursday.

Two demonstrations of advanced medical skills will be provided, and the media and the public can also visit the station anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to meet paramedics and learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).

Date: Thursday, August 31
Time: 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. – skills demonstrations
Location: 265 Manitoba Dr., on the CNE grounds

The CNE holds a day each year to recognize Toronto Paramedic Services' work in the community. On this recognition day, the service hosts a paramedic station open house and medical equipment display, and provides tours of the ambulances.

Members of the public can also watch Toronto Paramedic Services employees at 6 p.m. as they march in the daily Mardi Gras parade throughout the grounds.
