Emergency Medical Services

Mandate and Services Delivered

The EMS program is committed to ensuring quality emergency patient care to the residents and visitors within the District. Service is provided to the level of Primary Care Paramedics providing Semi-automatic defibrillation and cardiac monitoring, intravenous fluid administration, advanced airway management and a selection of symptom relief medications, injected, inhaled and orally administered.

Non-emergency patient transportation is made available on an as needed basis when resources are available and that will not compromise the availability of emergency services within the District.

Patient care quality assurance is monitored by an internal program administered by one of the Deputy Chiefs. The Base Hospital program operated by the Sudbury Regional Hospital oversees all advanced patient care skills and delegated to our paramedics though a licensed physician who trains and certifies our paramedics in their advanced patient care skills .
