RECOMMENDATION EPSC-8-2007:

That Regional Council decline the following HealthAnalytics recommendations:

  • for the highest priority emergency calls (Code 4 Tiered response) where both ambulances and fire trucks are dispatched using red lights and sirens (i.e. life threatening emergencies) the emergency medical services (EMS) first system response be set at six minutes, at least 90 per cent of the time;
  • where Fire departments are the first responders, the EMS first response standard be set at six (6:00) minutes and the Peel Regional Paramedic Services (PRPS) response standard be set at twelve (12:00) minutes, and that these timeframes be achieved at least 90 per cent of the time;
  • for all other emergency responses of a non-life threatening nature (Code 4 Non-Tiered Response) where only an ambulance is dispatched using red lights and sirens, HealthAnalytics recommends a response time standard of twelve (12:00) minutes, at least 90 per cent of the time

And further, that the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care implement a new call triage protocol based on the Medical Priority and Dispatch System (MPDS) model that will allow improved call triaging;

And further, that the Regional Chair contact the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care to express the need for the Ministry to act expeditiously in this regard;

And further, that the implementation of any revised EMS or ambulance response time targets for the Region of Peel be established upon the implementation of the new call triaging and vehicle dispatch system which accurately delineates and triages emergency calls, and effectively integrates the call intake and vehicle dispatch functions;

And further, that in the context of developing an effective call triaging system, the Region work towards, and provide the resources necessary to achieve response times of five (5:00) minutes at the 90th percentile for EMS system first response;

And further, that these targets apply to the most urgent conditions which may include the following:

a. Cardiac Arrest/VSA
b. Major Trauma (including penetrating trauma)
c. Shock
d. Near Death Asthma
e. Severe Respiratory Distress
f. Unconscious/Unresponsive
g. Seizures
h. Real or apprehended heart attack/chest pain.

And further, that at such time as the call triaging and vehicle dispatch system is available for implementation, a process be undertaken by program staff, in consultation with identified stakeholders, to establish appropriate response time targets for all other call triaging classifications, and report these targets to EPSC for direction;

And further, that Regional Council reaffirm its position as set out in Resolution 2006-1149 that the Province implement a media campaign to prevent the misuse of Paramedic Services for calls which can be addressed through other healthcare agencies.

Received 2007-834

RECOMMENDATION EPSC-10-2007:

Whereas, the ability of Peel Regional Paramedic Services (PRPS) to obtain timely access to complete and accurate data from the provincially operated Central Ambulance Communication Centre (CACC) has been a major concern to the Region of Peel for several years;

Therefore be it resolved, that the request from AMEMSO to the MOHLTC to permit municipalities to have a direct electronic interface with CACC data, contained in the letter from the AMEMSO to the MOHLTC dated May 1, 2007, be endorsed;
