Im sorry to be a thorn in this but I must ask that NO ONE GIVE OUT OR TRADE WITH TAYLOR HOUBEN as he is a bad trader. Just ask around on facebook in the Police Fire EMS Security patch collector. He has burnt everyone there, including me as i had sent out an epaulette with the word "PARAMEDIC" and a patch and he sent out Nothing in return. He sends nothing to no one that he claims in trading with other.

You might not like what i have posted here but i am telling the truth, the whole truth so help me God.

Hello my name is Taylor Houben. I am a grade 12 I am very interested in the Ambulance Service. I am currently doing a school project on the Ambulance Service and I am wondering if by any chance if you had a spare or extra Ambulance Service Uniform Patch or something from the Ambulance Service Possibly?

Please Message me Back On Here Or at me

Respectfully yours Taylor Houben

Hey all, any comments on self regulation? Currently in Manitoba, we are in the first stages of getting self regulation. I'm sure there is pros and cons for same, but pls send feedback.

we have one 8 hr 5day a week paid shift
and a 24hr 'on call' shift paid 11.43 hrs per 24 hrs on a 3-2-2-3 rotation between the two teams.
we are working HARD and having this 'on call' schedule abolished and having only 12hrs shifts. soon,,,,,soon.

We run a 7 hr paid, 17 on call 6 on 2 off shift. Its the union minimum in the province. not a good shift. we have been trying to change to a 6 on 4 off, but the region won't budge on hiring a 4th person part time.... A neighbouring service works a 5-5-4 shift. 12hrs paid, 12 hrs on call.

Our rural service is 8 hour shifts and 16 hours paid on call. If any crew exceeds 16 hours in the vehicle they are taken off the road for 8 consecutive hours with pay though.

In Manitoba......... not uncommen to have 12 hours paid.... then 12 hours oncall for 4 days...... yes fatigue is a concern..... these shifts happen in the rural setting though. This has been the norm since I have been in the field.
Comment by Liam Anderson on April 13, 2009 at 1:45pm
I do believe that there are some bases in NS that run 24hr shifts. Maybe one of the other NS medics can confirm this.

Research would probably focus more on fatigue in general.

Do EMS in Canada work 24hr shifts? Is there any research in the Canadian EMS community that 24hr shifts are dangerous?

Have a look at Canada's only EMS Museum
