Innovations: First Responder
Innovations that involve first responders and/or address the need for first responder work in a community
Community Paramedics visit patients in their homes, and provide routine serivices, allowing other BC Emergency Health Services team members to be available for ambulance call outs.
First responders can spot under the radar patients that need care and communicate well with the medical clinic to get help.
