May 24, 2022
Paramedic Services Week is a time to recognize the paramedics that respond to the more than 90,000 medical calls Winnipeg receives each year. Running May 22 – 28, the theme for 2022 is the ‘Faces of Paramedicine’ and focuses on the unique specializations within paramedicine that contribute to quality pre-hospital and emergency care.
“By having different skill sets within the larger paramedical and first responder team, we are able to quickly deploy resources to best support the patient,” said Christian Schmidt, Chief of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS).
