Mortlach and Parkbeg, First Responders (MP First Responders)
Throughout the province 911 is the number to call for all emergencies - fire, police, or ambulance. In rural areas such as Mortlach, in order to decrease the response time for medical emergencies, there are community volunteers trained in advanced first aid and CPR who are also dispatched when the ambulance is needed. These First Responders are able to make initial assessments and care for the patient until the ambulance arrives. They follow strict guidelines regarding professionalism and confidentiality. As volunteers, they may not be available for every ambulance call, but are a dedicated part of the Emergency Medical Services in the Mortlach area.
The First Responders have two Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs), which are located in the Mortlach Memorial Hall and the Mortlach Centenial Rink.
