Polin Hung, St. John Ambulance – “First Aid Training and Volunteering in Your Community”

Tuesday, 12 March 2019 - 7:00pm

Polin Hung, is the Unit Chief, Outreach & Education, St. John Ambulance Peel Branch.

Polin has been a volunteer with St. John Ambulance since 2008 as a Medical First Responder, providing advanced medical first aid at community events, notably the Pan Am / Para Pan Am Games and Ontario Summer Games.

She also serves as the Unit Chief of Outreach and Education, leading a team of St. John Ambulance Ambassadors who educate the community on the importance of first aid training and giving back through volunteering.   

Her other passions include working as a Professional Engineer for the Government of Canada and being an adoptive parent to an assortment of rescues from Animal Services and Toronto Humane Society.

Polin is well known to Paul Henshall and Jim Dorsey from various community health events where she volunteered to provide medical first aid. After many conversations, we asked her if St. John Ambulance could provide first aid services for our Cruisin’ for a Cure every September. Over the past two years, the St. John Ambulance volunteers have become an integral part of our annual event.

Since its founding in Quebec City in 1883, St. John Ambulance has been providing first aid training and volunteer services to Canadian communities. Their stated mission is:

To enable Canadians to improve their health, safety and quality of life by providing training and community service…through community service, and first aid, and CPR training.

Please come out on March 12th and meet Polin; her presentation promises to be quite informative.
