Rise in red alerts prompts rally of first responders
from CBC News
Firefighters joined paramedics for a rally in St. John's recently, in response to a recent increase in red alerts. Red alerts are cases in which ambulances aren't available to attend an emergency. Firefighters say this is happening because Eastern Health is short-staffed. Doug Cadigan, president of the firefighter's union, says that's a safety concern for the public and emergency responders.
