On Monday, Bracebridge Deputy Mayor Rick Maloney raised the St. John Ambulance flag on behalf of the Barrie Simcoe Muskoka Branch at the Town of Bracebridge Municipal Office.

As Canada’s leading authority in first aid since 1883, and serving in the region since 1941, the St. John Ambulance Barrie Simcoe Muskoka Branch has grown to support six volunteer Community Service Groups, including two Medical First Response Units, two Therapy Dog Units, one Youth Unit, and one Car Seat Educator Team.

Last year, as possible during the pandemic, the 181 volunteers of the Branch provided the community with approximately 11,750 hours of volunteer services.

St. John Ambulance is looking to rebuild its local presence, particularly in relation to Therapy Dogs and First Aid Training. Those interested in joining are encouraged to visit www.sja.ca
