Parade in support of health care staff in Windsor

Record Staff

The municipalities of Windsor, Val-Joli and St-François-Xavier-de-Brompton joined forces with the Windsor Regional Fire Authority and Ambulance Services for a parade to show their appreciation for health care workers. The parade, which took place on Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. started at the Windsor fire station and drove through the city with lights and sirens on to symbolically mark the public’s support and recognition of those who work in the health care system.
Fire trucks, emergency vehicles, ambulances and municipal vehicles were all present for the event. Employees as well as members of the municipal council also took part in the activity.
“The staff members of the various health resources are on the front line and spare no effort to offer a service to the population and we want to show them our support,” explained Windsor Mayor Sylvie Bureau.
The current pandemic brings its own set of changes and constraints, a challenge that everyone is taking up collectively on a daily basis. But health services, particularly seniors’ residences, are tirelessly invested in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and the importance of their work deserves to be recognized.
