Tiered Response Program

Paramedics, firefighters, and police officers respond to emergency calls involving ill and injured people under a formal agreement – the tiered response program.  The intent is to get a professional responder to an emergency scene as quick as possible.  Firefighters and police officers provide valuable assistance to paramedics at such times.

The Superior North Emergency Medical Service, the Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue Service and the Thunder Bay Police Service, have agreed to respond to medical emergency situations quickly.  Through this agreement, paramedics, firefighters, and police officers work together to aid ill and injured people.  With rapid response and quick attention, lives are positively impacted.
