North Eastern Alberta

Serving Fort Saskatchewan and seven other communities within Central and Northeast Alberta.

Formerly known as Prairie EMS, our history in North Eastern Alberta goes back to 1991 when founder Rob Hargreaves incorporated several ambulance services under the name Prairie Emergency Medical Systems. Since that time, the operation has evolved to the point that all services now provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) or can offer Advanced Life Support backup from another ambulance service. We also provide inter-facility transfers in our service areas, as well as non-ambulance transport services in St. Paul. Medavie Health Services West operates in Fort Saskatchewan and seven other communities within central and northeast Alberta.


We take a lot of pride in the communities where we operate. Presently, we are involved with programs like the Party Program where junior high school students are educated about the dangers of high risk behaviours. We participate with the Party Program coordinator, RCMP, local fire departments and special guests to help the teenagers learn to make good decisions.

Our various other communities activities include helping to manage blood pressure clinics, supporting local sports teams, attending community events and helping the local swimming pool, fire department with medical equipment training, seniors safety awareness training, hospital assistance, AED awareness, and community fundraising events.
