10 of the 21 new stations to be built in the next two years are now operational and seven are under construction.
Passengers flying into Pearson must have felt the optimism in the air June 14 as Mayor Crombie, Regional Chair Frank Dale, Chief Administrative Officer, David Szwarc, Commissioner of Health Services, Janette Smith, Fire Chief Tim Beckett and Paramedic Chief Peter Dundas joined community members to celebrate the official opening of the new Emergency Services Building on Airport Road.
This building, which is now home to Peel’s newest paramedic and fire station, is one of four in Mississauga where the Region and City share resources to save taxpayer-dollars. It also reflects the Region’s commitment to placing paramedics closer to the communities they serve."Last year, we responded to nearly 2,500 calls from Pearson, treating thousands of passengers from Canada and across the globe. With this station only minutes away, we can respond to airport emergencies faster, and offer patients the best outcomes possible," said Chief Dundas.
