City of Kawartha Lakes Paramedics are celebrating Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week with the Annual Paramedics in the Park display and barbecue on Friday, May 20th in Victoria Park.


The event runs from 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and you can tour the ambulances, see how the  equipment works and meet our “Everyday Heroes”. At 12:15 watch a paramedic crew in action as they deal with injured patients at a simulated car/pedestrian collision.


Proceeds from the event will purchase Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) for schools.


Hamburger, sausage or hot dog meals (includes pop and chips) are available for $5.
