Since 2005 the County of Renfrew Paramedic Service has been serving community of Renfrew County and surroundings. The Service has seen significant growth in this timeframe with the introduction of an increased scope of practice for the paramedic staff as well as increased resources available for deployment throughout the County.
The Service strives to achieve the vision of an improved quality of life for the residents and visitors of the County and has focused on three key strategies: Building Capacity, Synergistic Partnerships and Innovation while ensuring services continue to be responsive, appropriate, reliable, and safe.
Both Primary and Advanced Care Paramedics within the Service achieve annual Certification Standards for Symptom Relief and Semi-Automated External Defibrillation and work under the medical direction of the Regional Paramedic Program of Eastern Ontario. Continuing medical education and ongoing professional development and training are the cornerstones for the continuous improvement of the Service.
