Councillor’s Corner (Submission for Deadline of Wednesday, July 5th)

 The City of Ottawa declared June 24th to be St. John Ambulance Day. 

I had a wonderful time with Mayor Sutcliffe and members of St. John Ambulance to raise their flag in recognition of their service to Canadians.

The St. John Ambulance organization has played an integral role in providing vital support to residents for a large part of Canada’s history.

Formed in 1883, the St. John Ambulance began teaching first aid courses in Quebec City and shortly thereafter, offered classes in Kingston to eventually become a coast-to-coast organization.

Consisting of over 10,000 committed volunteers, the St. John Ambulance is a charitable organization that promotes and teaches emergency medical services to residents across the country.

Providing over one million hours of community service per year, the St. John Ambulance organization has impacted the lives of many, and much of it is thankless work.

Volunteering is central to the St. John Ambulance organization where they provide their valuable time and resources to those interested in preparation for worst-case scenarios.

They are Canada’s premier first aid training organization, setting the standard for excellence in first aid and CPR training, offering innovative programs that include substance use awareness, the importance of mental health in the workplace and many other community services.

More specifically, initiatives promoted by St. John Ambulance include the Ontario Workplace Opioid Response Training, Opioid Poisoning Response Training, support of the St. John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital, and offer many bursary and scholarship awards to eligible volunteers enrolled in post-secondary education.

It is important for residents across the City of Ottawa to recognize their work, show their support, and become involved in this wonderful organization.

It is an honour to be an official board-member of this organization and see the incredible work they do on a daily basis.
