EMS recognizes TTC lifesavers
Constables Max Axmith and Trevor Timbrell received Exceptional assistance awards which were handed out by Toronto Emergency Medical Services (EMS) on May 2. They were honoured for providing CPR and life-saving medical care.
“The people we honour have gone above and beyond expectations in helping people in our community, or in promoting the paramedic profession. We are delighted to give them special recognition,” said EMS Chief Paul Raftis.
Constables Axmith and Timbrell responded to a radio call about an unconscious man at the Dundas West Station. When they arrived they found the person without vital signs. They immediately began CPR and used the station’s defibrillator unit on the man. When paramedics arrived they located a pulse on the patient. He survived his cardiac arrest.
