A flag raising ceremony will take place today at the Manitoba legislature to honour the Manitoba Council of St. John Ambulance’s 100th anniversary.
Health Minister Theresa Oswald will commemorate the 100-year history of Manitoba’s emergency first aid trainer by saying a few words prior to the ceremony. St. John Ambulance will also carry out brief casualty simulations as well as first aid, CPR and automatic external defibrillator demonstrations.
Besides providing standard and emergency first aid training, St. John Ambulance provides many other programs and services across Manitoba, including a youth services program, the ‘See Spot Read’ program and therapy dog programs.
The ceremony will take place on the grand staircase in the Rotunda at 11:30 a.m.
