CORNWALL | The City of Cornwall and Cornwall SDG Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is celebrating Paramedic Services Week from May 25 to May 31. Paramedic Services Week is a special time set aside to honour and recognize the dedi- cation of Paramedics and staff in our com- munity.

In 2014, Paramedics in Cornwall and SDG responded to over 12,000 emergency calls. “Each day, Paramedics go to work pre- pared to meet the unexpected. They equip themselves both mentally and physically to deal with the challenges they will face in serving the community and its citizens,” said EMS Chief Myles Cassidy, who has been in the EMS field for 25 years.

ter scenes, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents and other emergencies, providing everyone with access to quality emergency care,” said Chief Cassidy. “Ap- propriate medical care in an out-of-hospital setting dramatically improves the survival and recovery rate of those who experience sudden illness or injury.” To meet the growing demands for emer- gency medical services, much has changed in the past 10 years. The Public Access De- fibrillator program has delivered CPR and Automated External Defibrillator training to thousands of citizens in life saving inter- ventions. To date, 197 defibrillators have been installed in public places throughout Cornwall and SDG for use by the public in a medical emergency. In celebration of Paramedic Services Week, members of Cornwall SDG Emergen- cy Medical Services were at the Cornwall Square on May 27, displaying equipment and supplies used by Paramedics and of- fering demonstrations of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) used in public buildings.
