Carman, Manitoba – Hon. Eileen Clarke, MLA for Agassiz, welcomed news that five new paramedics are now working in Gladstone. These include three new full-time and two new part-time paramedics, and are part of an overall announcement that 13 new paramedics are now working across the Southern Health-Santé Sud region.
“Our Progressive Conservative government understands the importance of having more paramedics working in rural Manitoba,” said Clarke. “These investments will help ensure that our rural communities can count on care when and where they need it most.”
Today’s announcement continues the Progressive Conservative government’s work to implement the recommendations of the 2013 Manitoba EMS System Review. The recommendations include increasing the number of paramedics in rural Manitoba, additional ambulances, and restructuring the rural EMS stations to allow for better geographic coverage and 24/7 staffing.
