Happy #paramedicservicesweek to all our hard working and dedicated friends with Peel Region Paramedics Services.
Our crews responded to a single vehicle into a tree this morning.  Extrication was required to remove the driver.  Peel Paramedics treated and transported the patient to St. Mike's Hospital.  Peel Police are investigating.   Good job by all those involved.
