Toronto Fire Services to honour civilians and firefighters
The City of Toronto's Fire Services division will hold its annual Rescue and Merit Awards event tonight to recognize civilians and firefighters who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Date: Wednesday, April 25
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Toronto Fire/Emergency Medical Services Training Centre, 895 Eastern Ave.

The presentations will be made by Fire Chief William Stewart.

Among the recipients are a young girl who was eight years old when she ran to call 9-1-1 as her father tried to put out a burning vehicle in an underground parking area, and two school teachers who used a defibrillator on a student when he collapsed in the gym.

A firefighter and a dispatcher involved in emergency responses to a fire at 35 Shoreham Dr. will be recognized, as will a firefighter who, while off duty, came to the aid of an injured Toronto Police constable.

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.
