This annual ceremony recognizes members of the public who, in the past year, assisted Toronto EMS paramedics and emergency medical dispatchers in providing emergency medical care to those in need. It also recognizes Toronto EMS and allied service employees (police, fire, transit) who have gone above and beyond their regular duties to help others in a medical emergency, or to improve the services Toronto EMS provides.

Members of the media are invited to film and photograph the event proceedings and interview honourees.
