Paramedics Compete In Virtual Simulation In Stratford

One of the first Paramedic Virtual Reality competitions in Canada is being held in Stratford on Friday.

Paramedic teams from across the province will compete against each other through a virtual reality environment to provide emergency medicine to virtual victims of a virtual disaster.

The event, hosted by Perth County Paramedics Services, will showcase how using the virtual reality platform can help fill in training gaps that most first responder agencies struggle with.

It’s because running large-scale disaster scenarios are extremely costly and time consuming to organize.

Friday’s event takes place at Perth County Paramedic Services Headquarters on Douro Street in Stratford.
