EMS Shortages

Published on: Nov 3, 2017
Town of Shaunavon
UPDATE - The Town of Shaunavon would like to notify residents that the EMS (Emergency Medical Services) staffing shortage will only be in effect for the balance of FRIDAY, November 3, 2017, as Cypress Health Region was able to fill the staff vacancies for Saturday and Sunday. We will continue to keep you informed as developments occur.

ONCE AGAIN, The Town of Shaunavon would like to notify residents that there will be an EMS (Emergency Medical Services) staffing shortages in Shaunavon from Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please be aware that as a region, that EMS services are still provided, and that responses to medical calls may be required to be responded to by the communities of Eastend and Frontier. The Town of Shaunavon deems this as being unacceptable, as we are having to utilize limited regional resources to ensure critical services, which may potentially leave other communities at risk. We will be pressuring the government to come up with a viable long-term solution to the EMS staffing within the region. As always is the case, if you're experiencing or witnessing a medical emergency please dial 9-1-1. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) staff will be dispatched to assist you. We will continue to keep you informed as developments occur.
