Rural Paramedics get funding to improve training

A total over $345,000 has been awarded to Paramedic’s in BC.

The bursary awards program established by the Ministry of Health Services will see a total of 39 Primary Care and 10 Advanced Care Paramedic’s receive monies to help defray license upgrade costs.

“Improved training for emergency medical responders means better pre-hospital care for patients, said Health Services Minister George Abbott. “The bursary award is one of the many recruitment and retention initiatives underway to attract paramedics to positions in rural and remote communities.”

From 109 first round applicants, 49 bursary award recipients were selected and these individuals have indicated an interest in serving as Primary Care Paramedics or Advanced Care Paramedics across British Columbia. Preference for the Primary Care Paramedic bursary awards was given to those individuals currently working in, or looking to work in, rural and remote communities.

The areas likely to benefit from PCP trained students include: Anahim Lake, Central/South Okanagan, Chase, Clearwater, Cranbrook, Fort St. John, Gabriola Island, Galiano Island, Golden, Hazelton, Kaslo, Lumby, Prince George, Midway, Mill Bay, New Hazelton, Smithers, Pemberton/Squamish, Pender Island, Port McNeill, Revelstoke, Salt Spring Island, Sunshine Coast, Terrace, Thompson Okanagan Region, and Victoria.
