    This city should not have even one basic life support truck in it doing emerg calls. Every one of them should be ALS and the transfer trucks could be BLS and there needs to be way more of them. Also, every service in the province should be amalgamated to provide continuity of service

    Step 1) Have at least one ambulance in the City and similar areas dedicated to inter-hospital transfers only. Patients often have to go from one hospital to another depending on the availability of specialists, equipment, or beds. The only way to do this is through the ambulances. Sometimes the admitted patient has to wait for up to a couple of hours on a stretcher or the emergecny patient has to wait for an ambulance to finish a non-emergency transfer. Neither is a good situation and many health care systems throughout Canada have dedicated inter-hospital transfer ambulances.
