More paramedics coming to communities around Prince George

The recent changes to paramedic staffing in rural areas will see more paramedics in the areas around Prince George.

Previous models held a reliance on “on-call” staffing which made it difficult to attract and retain paramedics, according to a BC Ambulance presentation to the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George Thursday. The new model brings a net total of 13 new regular paramedic positions to Bear Lake, Mackenzie, McBride and Valemount. The roll out of this new model is expected to start in November.
