North-East EMS is an active rural Advanced Care Paramedic service with an annual call-volume of approximately 1500. Our population base is over 15000, with 5200 in the town of Nipawin, and our coverage area is geographically the largest in the province. The EMS fleet consists of two Supervisor/First Response units (one car and one 4x4 truck) and six newer Modular units (one 2006 and one new 2007). We currently have a staff of seven ACPs, five ICPs and thirteen PCPs. Many of our employees have more than a decade of experience; this provides new EMS providers with the opportunity to learn and be mentored by seasoned veterans. Cardiac monitors are LP12s and LP10s. We run our crews out of two bases; one in Carrot River and one in our base and office complex in Nipawin. The Nipawin base has a roomy five-bay garage, modern staff quarters, shower facilities, training room with computer and Internet, and administration offices. The Carrot River base has a brand new expansion to better facilitate response from that part of our district. We also provide EMS coverage at the Fort a la Corne Diamond Site near Nipawin. Wages closely follow the current HSAS pay schedule.

Nipawin and area offer many recreational opportunities such as hockey, curling, fishing, hunting, boating, camping, hiking, skiing, softball, snowmobiling, and golfing.

Please send your resume, including references, certificates and education transcripts, in confidence to Mark Ollinger, Operations Manager, by email, or by fax to the above number.

Late submissions received will be kept on file for the next hiring.
