Our 2019 Provincial Competition was last held on May 25, 2019 in Toronto at The Branson Ambulatory Care Centre, 555 Finch Avenue West. Congratulations to the twenty-three participating teams from across the Province and Thank you to the over one hundred and sixty volunteers that came out to support the work of the OMFRC Competition Committee to host these teams.
The history of St. John Ambulance first aid competitions dates back to the 1890’s in England, to 1914 in Canada and to 1918 in Ontario.
The objectives of these first aid competitions are to improve the efficiency and quality of care provided by first aiders, to accustom first aiders to work in all types of surroundings, to build confidence in first aiders, to stimulate a healthy rivalry between competing teams, to provide the opportunity for competitors to meet and interact with their colleagues from across the province, and to allow members of the public to view the excellent care St. John Ambulance trained first aiders provide.
The “Policies, Procedures, and Rules” can be found within this official Ontario Medical First Response Competition website.Paul Sims CStJ, R.N., E.M.C.A.
