This is the DEATH MASK of a young woman who drowned in the River Seine in the 1880s. As was customary in those days, her corpse was put on display in the Paris mortuary, in the hope that someone might recognize her and claim her body. The pathologist on duty became entranced by the girl with the enigmatic half-smile, and so he commissioned a plaster cast made of her face. This mask was replicated many times over. She became known as "L'Inconnue de la Seine,” or “The Unknown Woman of the Seine.”
In 1955, a toymaker named Asmund Laerdal created what we now know as the CPR doll. Asmund wanted his mannequin to have a natural appearance. Remembering a mask on the wall of his grandparents' house many years earlier, he decided that the L'Inconnue de la Seine would become the face of Resusci Anne - the CPR doll. So you see, this anonymous woman who drowned in the 19th century is responsible for saving many, many lives the world over. It is said that she has the most kissed face of all time. I hope you enjoyed this little #histmed tale! #cpr #histsci #FOTD #themoreyouknow #believeitornot #deathmask
As the weather turns bitter this is very important to remember. Warm up often and cover all exposed skin. Stay safe.
Cold weather over the next number of days has been forecast for many parts of #Alberta . In addition to covering exposed skin & periodically seeking warm shelter if you need to be outside for an extended period, take a read on how you can protect yourself & others. #yourEMS

WARNING FOR PARENTS - Firefighters want you to be careful when turning on your garden hose this summer, since the water inside can reach 140 degrees when left sitting out in the sun. This little boy suffered serious burns as a result.
Some time ago we did an experiment to demonstrate how many children we could fit behind a mini-van keeping them invisible to the driver if they only used their mirrors prior to backing up. We were able to place 76 children in this blind spot and the driver could not see a single child. The larger the vehicle, the larger the blind spot. With this information in hand we headed to Wheatland Elementary School to see how many students we could fit into this blind spot behind our ambulance. In the photos there are 246 students behind the ambulance and not a single child is visible in the driver's mirror. Unfortunately we ran out of students before we filled this blind spot. Driveway injuries are an under recognized often severe form of auto-pedestrian accidents and approximately 70% of children are backed over by a family member.. “The best safety advice for blind spots: Before backing up, walk around your vehicle both front and back”
The most effective knife defense!
