Why this petition matters


If an ambulance is not available to address your immediate health crisis, what will you do?   And if the Fire Department cannot come to your aid because they are responding to other calls, what then? This is an increasingly real likelihood in many areas of Alberta, including Cochrane.  We live beside the largest city in the province of over a million people; our population is approximately 30, 000 and growing.  Lacking proper ambulatory service should not be a problem, but it is.

  • Join the citizen petition below to ensure that Cochrane has a permanent and stable ambulance EMS response immediately.  We are seeking our MLA, Peter Guthrie to carry forward a THREE point plan to address the lack of reasonable and adequate ambulance care available to his constituents in the Cochrane area.  

The action group is calling for:

  1. non-emergency transfers to be completed by alternative sources,
  2. ending hospital wait times for EMS crews, and 
  3. for the province to stop flexing our local ambulances into Calgary and area.
