Mini presentations and discussion opportuniteis

11AM: What to know about 9-1-1 
With Jim Gardiner, Captain Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service and Karen Proulx, Medical Examiner's office

Have you ever wondered what happens if someone were to die in your home? What do you do? Do you call 9-1-1? The answer is “Maybe”. If you are armed with information, you can feel more empowered in your choices. Advance decisions can help you through the experience. Even if you were expecting death to come soon, the actual final moments of life and the decisions you make afterward can be very emotional. If dialing 9-1-1 is your go-to response, you need to know what happens once that call is made. Learn factual information and some practical suggestions on proactive ways for you to navigate choices you may want to make in a true end of life scenario.
