Emergency Health Services (EHS)

When Nova Scotians need help in an emergency, Emergency Health Services (EHS) paramedics are there. In addition to responding to emergencies, our paramedics also work in Collaborative Emergency Centres across the province; provide health care in nursing homes in HRM; and take on a leadership role in their community. EHS paramedics are a vital part of our health-care system.

Call 911 when someone’s health, safety or property is threatened and help is needed right away.

Medical First Responders

The EHS Medical First Response (MFR) program is a provincial-based program that serves to enhance pre-hospital patient care provided by the Emergency Health Services system in Nova Scotia. Beyond the lifesaving instructions provided by the EHS Medical Communications Officer, a Medical First Responder is often the first physical contact that the patient has with an individual who can offer some form of medical assistance.

Many of the Volunteer Fire Departments in Shelburne County have MFR trained firefighters.
