For over 32 years Aeromedical Emergency Services Ltd has been the ground ambulance provider for High Level and region. Our dedication to our diverse communities is an absolute privilege. The northern climate and geography come with many challenges and it’s our team members who do their absolute best to always put our patient’s safety and needs first. Aeromedical is proud to work side by side with the High Level Fire Department on many scenes. In the late 2000s, Aeromedical began our contract with Alberta Health Services to provide these ongoing services.
Aeromedical is proud to serve the northern part of Treaty 8. As an organization, the respect we have for the people’s traditions and their rights are a very important part of our daily operations. Aeromedical has been working closely with the nurses and health care providers from The Department of Indigenous Services Canada for over 32 years. Our open communication with these providers has allowed us to give the best care for each community member. We also depend highly on the knowledge of the pilots to fly our medics and patients safely to the assigned airports.
Mutual Aid Services
Aeromedical Emergency Services works collaboratively with other local EMS agencies in the North Zone providing emergent care and Advanced Life Support to the outlying rural communities. These rural areas are primarily serviced by the Alberta Health Services Basic Life Support (BLS) teams, but on occasion, when there are multiple patients, which is often seen in motor vehicle accidents, or when patients require skills beyond the BLS level, then Aeromedical crews are dispatched. We welcome the relations between these agencies, as the common goal is always patient care.
Industrial Ambulance Rendezvous
Aeromedical Emergency Services also provides ground ambulance support for its own industrial ambulance service, as well as for other industrial EMS contractors. When incidents occur out on a lease site, the on-site practitioner makes arrangements for an access road or highway meet with AES will occur. This way, the industrial ambulance can go back to its primary role of being available on site. The patient is then transported to the nearest hospital facility by either BLS or ALS teams.
