PRU (Paramedic Response Unit)
Paramedic Response Units (PRUs) are staffed by a single, experienced paramedic usually a Manager or Supervisor and can supplement the regular paramedic transport fleet of 2 Stettler ALS ambulances at peak staffing. PRUs are equipped with Advanced Life Support (ALS) equipment and communications equipment. The Manager will provide operational support and leadership in accordance with designated medical control guidelines and provincial protocols, Stettler District Ambulance policies and procedures, the Health Disciplines Act of Alberta and the Ambulance Services Act of Alberta. The Manager will also perform various tasks necessary to maintain and sustain the leadership, efficiency and quality of the general operation of the service.
PRU’s assist in improving response times when and ambulance may not be readily available (Code Red). PRU paramedic/manager will arrive first on the scene, assess and begin treating patients until the transport ambulance arrives. PRUs do not typically transport patients to hospital, they are not required to wait at emergency departments to offload patients and can be reassigned to new calls sooner.
