When Ontarians dial 9-1-1 for a medical emergency, they simply need help quickly. Ontario and municipalities have an established framework of emergency medical response designed to get the care they need as quickly as possible from highly-trained professionals.
Whether it is a stand-alone Paramedic or a dual role Fire Fighter Emergency Medical Responder, the people say it doesn’t matter who gets there first if they can save a life.
