Update on St. John Ambulance in Fort McMurray Over the course of the last several weeks there have been inquiries in regards to when St. John Ambulance will resume classes in the Wood Buffalo region. St. John Ambulance is committed to getting our Fort McMurray Centre up and running once the facility and equipment have been deemed safe and human resources are available. St. John anticipates the first courses to begin running at the end of June or early July. In the interim, individuals wishing to take a course in another centre such as Edmonton or any of our other 6 locations may have their registration transferred and honored. Those affected by the fire who have had their certificates expired will be given consideration in regards to re-certification courses. Cancellation of courses will also be honored if re-scheduling is not an option.

June is #StrokeAwarenessMonth and we are kicking it off with some staggering statistics. Each year more than 350,000 Canadians are hospitalized for heart disease or stroke, of this 66,000 do not recover. That equates to one person every seven minutes. Taking a first aid and cpr class will teach you the skills you need to know when someone is experiencing a stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA). We encourage everyone to become familiar with the signs and sympotoms of a stroke or TIA and remember F.A.S.T. Facial droop, Arm drift, Speech and Time. Facial Droop – one side of the face doesn’t move as well as the other side. Arm Drift – hold both arms out. One arm may not move or drifts down compared to the other side. Speech – casualty slurs words, uses incorrect words or is not able to speak. Time – get medical help immediately. The earlier a stroke is treated the better the outcome
