The president of the Health Sciences Association of Alberta says a planned funding cut to the province’s ambulance services will lead to more ambulance shortages and code red alerts. A code red alert is called whenever there are no ambulances available to respond to emergency calls.
The union representing paramedics employed by Alberta Health Services says reduced funding for ambulance services in the provincial budget could lead to more frequent “code reds.”
Albertans are being warned to prepare for more Code Red shortages of ambulances as a result of cuts announced in yesterday’s budget.
