In Nova Scotia, a paramedic is on the scene before the ambulance ever gets to your home. That’s because your ambulance dispatcher is also a trained, experienced paramedic.
In an emergency, every second counts for your loved ones. Having a paramedic on the phone with you makes a difference.
But that standard of care may soon be compromised. The Fitch Report, commissioned by the Nova Scotia government to review emergency health services in the province, may very well threaten the high standard of care Nova Scotians deserve with cutbacks. Emergency services availability, timeliness and quality are at stake.
Emergency Medical Dispatchers are the first link in your emergency medical team. Let’s keep the standard of care that our lives depend on!
Tell your elected representative in the Nova Scotia Legislature, Premier McNeil, Health Minister Delorey, Medavie and EHS Nova Scotia that you want to maintain that standard of health care and say no to service cutbacks!
