New paramedic classroom at Community Safety Village teaches health and safety to students



Newmarket – Students from Kleinburg Public School will receive hands-on CPR training from York Region Paramedic Services once a new safety education classroom opens at the Community Safety Village. Media are invited to attend this fun and educational event.

The Community Safety Village is an interactive educational facility with an indoor learning centre and outdoor miniature village. The training and other safety lessons is part of a unique ‘tri-services’ partnership between York Region Paramedic Services, York Regional Police and local municipal fire services to provide lessons in health and safety to students from kindergarten to Grade five.

In addition to CPR education, other lessons students will learn include fire and water safety, traffic and bicycle safety and basic first aid.
