Planning for the future of EMS in Alberta

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a critical component in Alberta’s healthcare system. EMS provides emergency response to 911 calls for patients across the province, as well as handling transfers for patients needing medical care between hospitals and medical facilities.

The Minister of Health has directed AHS EMS to work with Alberta Health to create a long-term Service Plan for EMS; this plan is to be completed by September 30, 2022. The EMS Service Plan is to be inclusive of all emergency health services, and to reflect how EMS integrates into Alberta’s health system. It will provide the vision and direction for EMS in Alberta for the next five years and set out a clear roadmap on how to get there.

The Service Plan will create an opportunity to hear from those who depend on the care: Albertans.
