Emergency Medical Services

Saving Lives, Improving Care

Alberta Health Services (AHS) Emergency Medical Services (EMS) brings care to people and people to care.

Every year, more than 5,600 EMS professionals support nearly a half a million emergency and transfer calls, both on the ground and in the air.

From the emergency communications officers (ECOs) who answer the phone when you call for an ambulance, to the front line paramedics who respond to help, AHS EMS works together to make sure Albertans get the right care, in the place, at the right time.

This webpage shares information and stories about the work AHS EMS does and performance data showing how effectively we are providing.
