Saturday is Toronto Emergency Medical Services Day at the zoo
  
Toronto EMS paramedics and emergency medical dispatchers will be at the Toronto Zoo tomorrow demonstrating first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) during Toronto Emergency Medical Services Day. There will also be a display of emergency medical vehicles.

EMS Commander Gayle Pollock will be available to speak to media and will elaborate on the educational displays.

Date: Saturday, September 8
Time: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Toronto Zoo

Vehicles will be displayed at the main entrance by the TTC bus loop and the globe statue, and the Junior Paramedic Zone will be inside the main entrance gates near the gift shop.

Children will have an opportunity to learn and practise first-aid skills, become a junior paramedic for the day and have their photo taken in a paramedic uniform, and learn what to do if they need to call 9-1-1 for a medical emergency.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 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. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
