First Responders are trained community volunteers who work together to provide medical aid to those in need. They are dispatched by Med-Com (a dispatch division of Crestvue Ambulance Services Ltd.).
Some of the groups are associated with rural fire departments. First Responders respond to medical or trauma emergencies in advance of a responding ambulance. They treat and stabilize a patient until the ambulance arrives.
