Cote Saint-Luc EMS and Public Security responded to two car crashes today.  This one closed Kildare west at Kellert, snarling afternoon traffic in the area.

EMS volunteers are first responders and as their name indicates are often first on the scene of a medical emergency, including car crashes. Many of CSL’s Public Safety agents are also trained EMS medics.

EMS crews rush to the scene of 9-1-1 calls for medical emergencies and take charge of stabilizing the patient until the arrival of the Urgences Santé ambulance.

As councillor responsible for public safety I am very proud of the great efforts of these talented young volunteers. Together with our Public Security agents, vCOPs and local Police officers our community is a safer, better place.  Many thanks to all of them.
