The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Foundation is a registered charity. We are separate from, but supportive of, the work of the uniformed Emergency Medical Services in Alberta. We help in three ways:
- We financially enable new initiatives and research that benefits Alberta Paramedics,
- We support preventative education and community outreach, and
- We preserve the history of EMS in Alberta
The EMS Foundation is the oldest such Foundation in Canada.
Supporting the person behind the uniform
A key theme and concern for the EMS Foundation in 2017-2018 is the mental resiliency of EMS first responders.
