A committee, charged with examining the issue, filed its recommendations with Alberta Health some time ago and was told late last year it had been officially disbanded.
It seems like the committee came up with something THEY didn't like

Big supprise there :-0

If things are going so well in palliser health region then why are there so many guys getting out of there and going to other services like Lethbridge and Calgary?

That is exactly what I am saying the place is falling apart but apparently all is well. If anyone is interested we are always hiring, The local parmedic college has a 100% placement rate cuz we hire em all to replace all the ones that leave. I cant tell you how many we loose as I have lost track, I seriously dont know everyones names cuz they go through here so fast, Right now 2 are going to Texas to take the fire course to work at MHFD 3 are in the Lethbridge Fire recruitment process. Another will be going to Red Deer soon another decided to go into nursing instead and is enrolled in the program. but hey what do I know I just work here. I guess I should read the news cuz things are just swell here. I really dont know how they get away with it. Good luck all pray that this does not come to your town.

This is very interesting. I had not heard anything of this yet. Hopefully if it does go ahead, all the integrated services end up in the same position as Peace River FD and run autonomously in the regions they serve.

And to paradrol, I am currently going through the process in Lethbridge with the 3 you mention.

Hope it goes welll for you. I am stuck here unfortunatly. The guys going through Lethbridge right now are great guys Lethbridge will be lucky to get them Like all the others that have left here for there recently. I believe integrated services will do well even with regionaliztion as you could never dismantle one of those services without incurring large degradation and increased cost. They will benefit from the ties of the municipality and infrastructure, Where as Palliser will continue to bleed because money will only come from Alberta Health, The city has washed their hands with us. Anyone who follows the health care funding issues will know that they are having a difficult time looking after the hospitals so I have no idea where the money will come from to look after EMS without serious degragation. Good luck to all. Integrated Fire/EMS IS THE ONLY SAFE PLACE TO BE IF THIS GOES THROUGH AND I AM HEARING IT WILL.

Just a bit of an update, through the grapevine it appears even integrated services may disappear in 3 years the way the province wants things run. Most services will accept contracts for 2-3 years but after that there is to many things going against any city wanting to keep their integrated service. It would seem that the province is going after hospital based EMS with emt/paramedics doing alot of their skills in the hospitals, then responding to calls when required.
