Alberta Health Services


Medical First Response (MFR) agencies such as fire departments and other community based volunteers contribute a valuable role in the care of patients before they arrive at a hospital.  MFRs are key partners with Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in Alberta that provide timely aid to patients and assist EMS when requested.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) has a responsibility to ensure patient care is delivered safely and to ensure responders are trained, prepared and supported to deliver that care.

AHS and Alberta Health, in collaboration with an expert advisory panel have developed a provincial model for Medical First Response.

The goals are:

  • Build provincial standards for MFR service delivery
  • Support the people and agencies providing MFR
  • Promote safe patient care with medical oversight and patient care guidelines

For more information please explore the MFR portal and contact us by clicking here, email MFR@ahs.ca or call 1-866-786-1440.
