Paramedic burnout and Code Zero events prompt OPSEU to renew call for more resources

from Global News

A lack of resources has led to an overwhelmed paramedic service in Hamilton, according to the union representing its workers. Mario Posteraro, President of OPSEU Local 256, says emergency personnel are fatigued mentally and physically. He says the number of calls keeps increasing. "[There were] 79,000 calls that we responded to last year, that's a seven per cent increase from the year previous," he said. "Over the last five years, our call volume has gone up thirty-five per cent." more
