Toronto Emergency Medical Services welcomes 50 new Canadians
As part of National EMS Week 2013 - Health Care in Motion, Toronto Emergency Medical Services Chief Paul Raftis will host a Citizenship Ceremony at Toronto EMS Headquarters. Fifty neighbourhood residents will receive their Canadian citizenship.

Guests will be able to learn how Toronto EMS provides 911 service in over 150 languages, how to provide assistance to paramedics before they arrive - by learning how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and how to use an automated external defibrillator. New citizens can also attend a wellness clinic with community paramedics.
