Rural EMS is on life support
from Winnipeg Free Press
Manitobans know in times of crisis, it often takes longer for responders to reach remote northern communities with emergency medical care than it would in Winnipeg. They may be less aware response times are also unacceptably long in larger rural Manitoba communities to the south, as well. This scenario, coupled with the fact that emergency room closures are becoming more common in more locations in rural Manitoba, has raised fears among rural residents about the level of care they receive in an emergency.
