Paramedic Services Week on the Frontline of a Pandemic

Celebrating Paramedic Services Week

York Region’s Paramedic Services employs nearly 700 paramedics and supporting staff members. To meet the needs of a growing population in York Region, the range of paramedic supports and services continues to expand.

This week from May 24 to 30, 2020, we celebrate the accomplishments of Paramedic Services and recognize all staff for their hard work and dedication.

The team’s integral role in the health care system has been amplified and leveraged during COVID-19. In addition to front line paramedics and operational leadership responding to emergency and non-emergency calls, the supporting teams have been providing unwavering supports during the pandemic.

  • Community Paramedics have been engaged with community partners, the Local Health Integration Network and hospitals to deliver effective and collaborative responses
  • The Paramedic Services logistics team has become a reliable source for PPE as they collect and store these much-needed supplies
  • Schedulers have been working tirelessly to make sure master schedules are maintained
  • The fleet team continues to maintain and procure the fleet
  • The facilities group keeps the stations running and ensures implementation of capital planning activities
  • The professional practice team continues to increase capacity through the recruitment and training of our new recruits and return-to-work programs for staff. Well-being initiatives such as our Peer Support Team provide immediate support when employees need it.
  • Paramedic Services continues to develop and expand innovative programs such as our Community Paramedicine Program to improve access to care

Paramedic Services is dedicated to providing quality care to ensure York Region residents are healthy and safe, especially during this time of COVID-19.

Thank you to all York Region paramedics for the work that you do.
