Media Advisory: Public Access Defibrillation Awareness Day at Toronto Zoo
Emergency Medical Services - The Toronto Zoo is joining with the Toronto EMS
Cardiac Safe City Program to promote awareness of Public Access Defibrillation.

The Toronto EMS Cardiac Safe City team will be visiting the Toronto Zoo
tomorrow to demonstrate the defibrillators and to answer questions regarding
defibrillator programs in private facilities such as fitness centres, golf
courses, shopping malls, office buildings, condominiums and other venues where
large groups of people gather.

Toronto Zoo staff will be available to discuss the technology and training from
the end user's perspective.

Date: Tuesday, July 15

Time: 10 a.m.

Location: The Toronto Zoo
Meadowvale Road, Scarborough (North of Hwy. 401)
Peacock Café (just inside the main gates)

The goal of Toronto EMS is to have defibrillators installed in all City-owned
properties like the Toronto Zoo. The Cardiac Safe City campaign takes it a step
further and challenges private businesses to make their work places safer by
implementing their own public access defibrillation programs.

For more information on Public Access Defibrillation, please call the Toronto
EMS Cardiac Safe City Hotline: 1-87-SAFECITY (1-877-233-2489) or visit our Web
