Toronto Paramedic Services hosts open house at new multi-function paramedic station in North York
Join Councillor Maria Augimeri (Ward 9 York Centre) and Toronto Paramedic Services Acting Chief Gord McEachen, as they host a community open house and ribbon cutting ceremony to open Toronto's first new multi-function paramedic station.

This new station is designed to accommodate up to 25 ambulances and their respective paramedic crews as well as other support services. It is the largest ambulance station ever built in the City of Toronto. The official remarks and ribbon cutting will be followed by station tours, paramedic skill demonstrations and vehicle displays.

Date: Wednesday, September 13
Time: 2 p.m. (official remarks)
Location: 1300 Wilson Ave., south of Keele St. Parking is available on site at the north end of the building. Enter the building through the west doors.

This is Toronto Paramedic Services' first multi-function station and it is designed to serve patients more efficiently and effectively. This infrastructure investment is part of Toronto Paramedic Services' key strategic initiatives designed to prepare the service to meet the City's pre-hospital emergency needs as the population continues to grow and age.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto is honouring Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
