Land Ambulance Deployment Plan

Paramedic deployment in the District of Kenora is dynamic with resources constantly changing to best meet the demand. During peak demand periods there are 11 Paramedic crews ready to respond to any and all emergencies. In non-peak hours there are a minimum of 5 ambulances on the ready for deployment in all emergency situations, with crews available on call when necessary.

In all cases, the deployment plan for NWEMS provides for the provision of non-emergent patient transportation services between medical facilities. This service, however, is not provided at the expense of emergency medical coverage. In short, 911 emergency responses will not be compromised to provide non-emergent service.
