First Responders Day


On behalf of the Ontario Association of Emergency Managers we thank Mr. Frank Klees, MPP for Newmarket - Aurora, and the Ontario Government for proclaiming May 1st First Responders Day.

First responders are those men and women who, in the early stages of an emergency, are responsible for the protection and preservation of life, property, evidence and the environment. They include police officers, firefighters, military personnel, paramedics, medical evacuation pilots, dispatchers, nurses, doctors, emergency medical technicians and emergency managers.
