Clinical Support Desk

The Clinical Support Desk is a new program that provides an alternative support system for paramedics in the field.

Collaborative Emergency Centers (CEC)

Several rural Nova Scotia hospitals operate as CEC in the evenings when the attending physician is off-duty.

Community Paramedics

Community Paramedics work collaboratively with a patient’s primary health care provider to assess and treat medical complaints.

Emergency Preparedness Special Operations (ESPO)

Emergency Preparedness and Special Operations (EPSO) is a division of Emergency Health Services (EHS) Ambulance Operations. EPSO is available to assist regionally, as well as provincially, in times of disaster, special events, planning and with scene standbys that have the potential to be of longer duration and possibly hazardous.
