When You Need a Helping Hand
Looking for a transport to a medical appointment, but you don't need a stretcher? Do you need help getting to a medical clinic appointment or getting home from the hospital? Do you need transport for regular IV therapy or dressing changes? Do you need a ride to or from the airport?
If you've answered yes to any of those questions, allow us to introduce ourselves. We're Community Paramedics Service and our team of off duty and retired paramedics are available whenever you need us. We serve Winnipeg and the surrounding areas.
We are happy to help, but please remember we are not an ambulance service and we don't respond to emergencies.
When you ride with Community Paramedics Service, your health and safety is our number one priority. Paramedics are trained in infection control techniques recommended by governing health officials and routinely employ the precautions that should be undertaken during a community heath crisis.
We provide appropriate Body Substance Isolation (BSI) precautions for our staff and every person who rides with us. Our vehicle is sanitized before and after each trip including: seats, armrests, headrests, seatbelt buckles, door handles, and all lifting and moving apparatus including wheelchairs, stairchair, lifting tarps, and lifting belts. Surfaces in our vehicle are sanitized with products which kill 99.99% of all bacteria.
We expect your ride with us to be as safe as your home quarantine. If your destination is a concern, please contact us as soon as possible prior to your booked appointment if you decide to cancel or postpone it. We are happy to reschedule and will give priority on a first booked basis.
We hope this gives you confidence in the actions we are taking on your behalf. We remain committed to providing you with safe medical transportation and we look forward to serving you in the near future
