Congratulations to all team participants and THANK YOU to almost 200 volunteers who came out to make this day such a success!
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.
On Saturday May 27, 2017, community service teams from each of our zones will come together to compete at our OMFRC Provincial Finals.
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.
