Creating Capacity in EMS

Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services recently announced a comprehensive 10-point plan to address the 30 per cent increase in EMS calls that have been experienced over the last year.

This plan focuses on immediate actions that will help create capacity within our system and ensure EMS continues to remain available and safe for all Albertans. Alberta Health will also be leading an EMS Advisory group over the coming months, and we look forward to new ideas and connections coming from that work.

Joining vlog guest host Sean Chilton, Vice President of People, Health Professions and Information Technology, to discuss the plan and how we are supporting EMS staff are:

  • Kathleen Fraser, Provincial Program Director, EMS Employee Program
  • Darren Sandbeck, Senior Provincial Director and Chief Paramedic, EMS
