Alberta Health Services


Medical First Response (MFR) agencies in Alberta such as fire departments and other community based volunteer groups, share 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 is committed to ensuring 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.

Our 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
