B.C. paramedics call new emergency rescue rules 'ridiculous'

from Global News

Some of the changes made to the rules of how B.C.'s ambulance crews operate in an emergency situation are being called "ridiculous" by paramedics. The new rules put out by B.C. Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) focus on crews working safely in and around slopes. Paramedics can continue to work if the slope is less than 35 degrees and if there is no risk of falling or tumbling greater than three metres or 10 feet. If the slope or embankment happens to be steeper than 35 degrees and has a designated walkway then the paramedics may continue with the rescue — as long as the ground is walkable and without boulders, ice or soil saturated with water. more
