Tribune Express - - ACTUALITTES - NEWS -

The chief for the Pres­cott-Rus­sell Am­bu­lance Ser­vice is op­ti­mis­tic about mee­ting next year’s per­for­mance goals for his de­part­ment.

Mi­chel Chrétien, emer­gen­cy ser­vices di­rec­tor for the Uni­ted Coun­ties of Pres­cott and Rus­sell (UCPR), pre­sen­ted the 2019 per­for­mance plan re­port to coun­ties coun­cil du­ring its Sep­tem­ber 26 ses­sion. Chrétien told coun­ties coun­cil that he is “op­ti­mis­tic” about his de­part­ment mee­ting next year’s goals for ar­ri­val and run times, for regional am­bu­lance units dis­pat­ched to calls wi­thin the Pres­cottRus­sell region.

The UCPR is re­qui­red un­der pro­vin­cial rules to file a per­for­mance plan pro­po­sal each year for its regional am­bu­lance ser­vice. The plan out­lines the per­cen­tage com­pliance ex­pec­ted for the year for units dis­pat­ched to calls ran­ging from car­diac ar­rest in­ci­dents to a range of ac­ci­dent si­tua­tions, va­rying from mi­nor to life-threa­te­ning, com­pa­red to ti­med res­ponse stan­dards set by the coun­ties and the pro­vince. An­nual eva­lua­tion re­ports show how well the ser­vice has per­for­med com­pa­red to plan pre­dic­tions.—Gregg Cham­ber­lain
