Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in Saskatchewan has it's own particular challenges due to our geographical land base of 650,000 sq.kms, with a population base of just under one million residents served. EMS serves its communities through 110 ambulance services, 250+ ambulance units, 1000 registered First Responders, 1420+ registered EMR's, EMT's, EMT-A's and Paramedics. These practitioners respond to an average of 92,000+ calls a year.
