Services Provided

Providing the best-possible care to our patients on the scene and ensuring their safe and timely transport to hospital is our priority.

We strive to do our part in creating safe and healthy communities across the province by providing various levels of emergency and other medical services:
Basic Life Support (BLS) This service consists of two Primary Care Paramedics (PCP)s on an ambulance.

Advanced Life Support (ALS)

This service consists of at least one Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP) and one PCP on the ambulance. ACPs have a wide scope in which they are able to operate under. ACPs have the ability to treat heart attacks, trauma patients, administer medications and intubate (tubing the airway to support breathing).

Inter-facility Transfers

We provide ALS, BLS and NAT (Non-Ambulance Transport) transfers to hospitals and care centers in their regions. Many patients will need to be transferred to other hospital for tests, higher level of care, surgeries etc. MHSW ALS transfers are able to accommodate very high needs patients and can call in additional staff in certain circumstances.

Event Standby

We provide on-site stand by medical care for a variety of special events including motocross races, road bike races, cart races, rodeos, oil patch work, plant turnarounds and large community events. Both ALS and BLS service are available for standby. We can also provide staff for on-site clinical events.

Working with Other Agencies

We also work closely with a variety of other agencies. Staff work directly with the RCMP in various situations such as motor vehicle collisions or when a patient may be violent. We also utilize the STARS air ambulance service when transport time is critical. When STARS is involved, we first stabilize the patient(s) and then transfer the patient to STARS for further care and rapid transport to a hospital in Edmonton.
