Community members are also invited to join the Northumberland Paramedics team in celebrating Paramedic Services Week by connecting with them at the Cobourg Farmer’s Market on Saturday, May 27th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Residents and families can stop by the Rotary Harbourfront Park to explore an ambulance, meet a paramedic, and learn more about how paramedics provide care for our community.

The Northumberland Paramedics mascot, Terry the Traumasarus, will also be attending the market for meet-and-greets and photos from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Community members that attend are encouraged to tag @NorthumberlandParamedics in their photos on Facebook to show support for Paramedic Services Week.
