These protocols ensure consistent standards of care are being provided province-wide. Protocols are clearly defined clinical treatment pathways that EMS paramedical staff will follow when providing care. They are protocols and must be followed. The protocols were developed by a provincial committee comprised of EMS staff, physician leadership and Alberta Health and Wellness. All protocols are evidence-based and have been reviewed by specialty experts such as emergency physicians and pediatricians. Protocols are in compliance with the Emergency Health Services Regulation.
Ambulance and emergency health services
In emergency situations, EMS crews assess and treat people who are injured or sick and, if further treatment is needed, transport people to the most appropriate health care facility. Members of the public cannot make arrangements for provincial air ambulance services on their own. AHS contracts 11 fixed-wing aircraft to provide hour air ambulance services throughout the province transporting about 7, patients each year. A number of charter helicopter operators provide rescue services to support patient care in remote areas of the province. The Alberta government provides funding for EMS. Only a small portion of the actual cost of the emergency health services EHS provided is charged to the patient, if they receive a bill at all.
