As demand for service increases Simcoe County must keep pace by expanding facilities.
New Ambulance Station To Be Operational by Fall
Construction of a new, five bay paramedic station at the corner of St. Paul and Ontario Streets in Collingwood is well underway. The new facility replaces the now demolished three bay structure and will be slightly under 6,000-square-feet in size. It should be fully operational by fall 2018. The new structure will contain additional supporting spaces including a ready room, washrooms, and services rooms along with five bays allowing for additional ambulance on site indoor parking.
In 2004, the County of Simcoe created the County of Simcoe Paramedic Services (CSPS) within the County structure. County of Simcoe Paramedic Services is operating in a high performance model. A high performance Paramedic Service model strives to achieve:
– Response Time Reliability
– Clinical Sophistication
– Economic Efficiency
– Customer Satisfaction
Paramedic Services employs over 300 full and part time Paramedics, Supervisors and administrative support staff throughout the county.
All paramedics are certified as Primary Care Paramedics (PCP) or Advanced Care Paramedics (ACP) through the The Sunnybrook Centre for Prehospital Medicine (SCPM) Base Hospital Program.
