The Saskatchewan College of Paramedics has certified and licensed the recruits as Primary Care Paramedics (PCP). This qualification is crucial since, according to the SFD, they react to more than 40% of EMS calls.

Chief Hackl stated that while hiring new personnel, “we search for people who will contribute to the overall success of our team.”

“With the increase in EMS calls in our city, it’s critical that our staff have paramedic training. Our firemen can efficiently respond to emergency EMS in high-hazard settings thanks to their additional PCP qualification.

At the ceremony, awards and battalion assignments were distributed. Next week, the new members will start working.
