Free CPR Event in Mississauga's Celebration Square

WHAT: Peel Regional Paramedic Services and Councillors Saito and Fonseca are hosting a free, hands-only CPR event. Participants will learn and practice the life-saving skill of chest compressions on mannequins. Members of the Peel Paramedic Association, The Mikey Network, Mississauga Fire & Emergency Services, Peel Regional Police and St. John Ambulance will be on-hand to help deliver the training.

WHY:  Peel’s bystander CPR rate in Peel is approximately 35 per cent. When CPR, even hands-only CPR is delivered within minutes, it allows blood and oxygen to continue flowing to the heart and brain and increases someone’s chances for survival once paramedics arrive or a defibrillator is applied.

WHEN: Wednesday July 9, 2014
6:30 – 7:15 p.m.
6:30 – 6:40 p.m. Remarks from Mayor McCallion and Councillors Saito and Fonseca

WHERE: Celebration Square
300 City Centre Dr.
Mississauga, ON
