Region EMS Vehicle Sharing
Huron County council has approved a proposal that will allow Huron Emergency Medical Services share equipment and vehicles with Bruce and Perth County EMS.
Huron EMS Chief Dave Lew explains it’s mostly about vehicles, and while it hasn’t been a serious problem so far, the agreement does make sure that if Huron or one of its partners finds itself in a situation that another vehicle is required, it would have access to one.
Lew points out that addressing that potential risk is also part of the Provincial Service Review. But he also believes it’s a reasonable part of risk management for EMS services throughout the region.
