Emergency Services

Trained Personnel

Our team is comprised of skilled individuals who have completed a number of different mandatory training courses to ensure they have the ability to provide medical services to individuals within our community.

The Fort William First Nation Medical First Response Team provides Emergency Services to the community of Fort William First Nation. The team provides emergency response to 911 calls that are called within the area of Fort William First Nation. The team uses their personal vehicles as well as department emergency vehicles to provide emergency care to individuals who are experiencing a medical emergency prior to a Superior North EMS ambulance arriving on scene.

The reason for the deployment of the Medical First Response Team is to deploy trained Medical First Responders within the community when a 911 call is received to rapidly decrease the amount of time individuals who call 911 are waiting for emergency assistance. Medical First Responders will arrive on scene exponentially faster than a responding Superior North EMS ambulance which will allow our team members to stabilize a patient and have them ready to be transported by the time an ambulance arrives on scene.

Our team responds to a variety of calls within the community. The calls we respond to are called in through someone calling 911. Some of the calls we respond to are as follows.

  • Trauma Calls (Fractures, Bleeding, Slips Trips & Falls, Penetrations, Head & Spinal Injuries, Ect.)
  • Medical Calls (Difficulty Breathing, Chest Pain, Cardiac Arrest, Unconscious, Anaphylaxis, Ect.)
  • Motor Vehicle Collisions (MVC).
  • Search & Rescue Calls
  • Mutual Aid Assisting
