Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) launches challenge to other Emergency Services to support

Chief Bruce Farr of Toronto EMS, with Colonel Stephen Cadden, Chief of Staff, Land Forces Central Area, Canadian Forces, will announce a challenge to all Emergency Services to support the Share A Cup With A Brave Canuck! Challenge.

When: Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Time: 1p.m.

Location: Toronto EMS Headquarters, 4330 Dufferin St., in the ground floor atrium. Members of Toronto EMS will be present as well as Officers and Members of the Canadian Forces.

Toronto EMS is issuing a challenge to all Emergency Service employees across Canada to support our women and men of the Canadian Forces with a “THANK YOU!” and a small treat in time for the Holiday Season.

The employees of all Emergency Services will be asked to support the challenge by purchasing a $10.00 Tim Horton’s gift card to send to a member of the Canadian Forces serving in Afghanistan. This successful program was supported solely by Toronto EMS employees in 2008.

Toronto EMS is aware of the many missions and peacekeeping efforts that our Canadian Forces are involved with around the globe, and especially the sacrifices made by our service personnel in Afghanistan. This is a small way for us at home, to say ‘thanks’ to each of these brave Canadians.
