Lennox-Addington Reeve Henry Hogg believes that funding medical response is the proper direction by shifting dollars out of the healthcare system into fire support.
This is a common myth and incorrect thinking. Even if Fire Medical Response were to occur, a patient will still require definitive care and transport to a hospital by means of trained Paramedics in an ambulance. If there are no ambulances available, the patient will still suffer.
Choose to contact and educate Mr. Hogg that the only solution is MORE Paramedics, with more ambulances, to reduce response times and improve Lennox-Addington patient outcomes.
