Cub Scouts to learn first-aid skills at event hosted by Toronto EMS
One hundred boys and girls seven to 10 years of age will learn life-saving skills to earn their first-aid badges at Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) headquarters on Saturday.

Date: Saturday, March 23
Time: 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.
Location: Toronto EMS headquarters, 4330 Dufferin St. (access via Lodestar Road off Steeprock Drive)

The First Scarborough Medical Venturers (MedVents) and Medical Rovers, who range in age from 14 to 25, have volunteered to teach Cub Scouts seven first-aid topics.

Tours of a Toronto EMS ambulance will be available. Media are invited to take photos of the event any time during the day.

The Scarborough MedVents are a co-ed Scouts Canada youth group sponsored by Toronto EMS. Toronto paramedics volunteer their time to support MedVents and provide training in emergency first response. The MedVents share their medical training with their younger colleagues at this annual event.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
