I don't know about the rest of you, but we don't often post a thank you to people after staging a large scale event, and I wanted to take an opportunity to thank a few people.

On May 11th, D0504 Mississauga MFR Services division organized the medical first response coverage for the 5th annual Mississauga Marathon. Over 11,000 runners participated through various events on race day and we were able to field our largest response yet.

We were able to put into the field, 2 response gators, 2 ambulances, 1 supervisory vehicle, 1 operational support truck, 10 bicycle responders, 4 first aid tents, and 1 communications/control room.

It took a lot of effort to coordinate this large a response to a single day event, and couldn't have been done without a large amount of support.

It took 40 MFR's to provide coverage for this event, and we need to thank members from Orangeville, the University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM) Campus Response Team (ECSperT), and both York Region & Oakville/Halton Hills admin centres(for providing us with a gator each).

I also want to thank the members of Mississauga MFR Division for giving up another mother's day (5th in a row for some!) to help support our community during such a large annual event. It was a VERY early start for us, and thankfully a quiet day (which is the best event to cover.... lots of members, and very few patients!!!).

Thanks again to all who came to support this event!
