Local First Responders and Medical Services Celebrate Positivity Day

Chatham-Kent: September 5, 2018 – Today, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA), along with local First Responders, are positively delighted to celebrate First Responders and Healthcare Day for this year’s 12 days of Positivity in Chatham-Kent. 

In celebration of the day, CKHA will welcome representatives from Chatham-Kent Police Services (CKPS), Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services (CKFES) and Chatham-Kent Emergency Medical Services (CK EMS) to CKHA’s Chatham Site to spread positivity during the lunch hours. First Responders will assist CKHA staff to deliver lunches to patients and visitors as they serve in Café Grand as well as patient units. The opportunity provides First Responders and the community with a wonderful opportunity for positive engagement and community building. 

“As our partners in community safety and health we thank the First Responders for their ongoing commitment to Chatham-Kent,” says Lori Marshall, President & CEO, CKHA. “Celebrating First Responders and Healthcare Day is a reminder to ourselves and to the community of the important work done by CKHA and our community partners.” 

This is the second annual 12 Days of Positivity, an initiative developed to spread positive thinking and acts throughout the community of Chatham-Kent. For more information on the 12 Days of Positivity, please visit www.positivitydayinck.com.
