​​​​Paramedic Intercept Plan * Live 7/1/16

The EMS District Six Board approved a proposed Paramedic Intercept Plan for all EMS District Six services.  This was proposed by our Medical Director (Dr. Blum) and adopted after much discussion and committee action.  The Paramedic Intercept Plan will be effective July 1, 2016.  After ninety days, the subcommittee of the board will meet again to determine its impact on services and resources.  Click for a link to the pdf of the VAD6 Paramedic Intercept Plan.

Training on the plan has been developed.  Head of Services and Training Officers will implement the training on the plan utilizing various methods.  District Six personnel can complete Paramedic Intercept Plan training on LearnEMS.  (Centrelearn)
