British Columbia Ambulance Service

The British Columbia Ambulance Service is a Provincial wide network of ambulance stations throughout British Columbia. They routinely cover areas outside of the stations area depending on system load and current emergences. They respond to all types of medical emergency's and provide patent transfer services.

British Columbia Ambulance Service or BCAS is also known as Emergency Health Service EHS

Vehicles

  • Advanced Life Support
  • Basic Life Support
  • Infant Transport
  • Air Ambulance
  • Bike Squad
  • Mass Causality Transport
  • Ambulance Supervisor/RRV (Rapid Response Vehicle)

Communications

BCAS maintains a communications network throughout all of British Columbia. The geography of BC requires BCAS to use over 70 mountain top repeater sites. All ambulances are outfitted with two-way radios. Rural ambulances use VHF frequencies. Within the Lower Mainland, BCAS uses the E-CommWARS 800Mhz trunked system, as well as the CREST VHF trunking system in the Greater Victoria Region.

Medical Priority Dispatch System

Medical Priority Dispatch System (MPDS) is a medically approved unified system used by emergency medical dispatch centres to dispatch appropriate aid to medical emergencies. The system includes systemized caller interrogation; systemized pre-arrival instructions; and protocols which match the dispatchers evaluation of the injury or illness type and severity with vehicle response mode. BCAS utilizes a resource allocation plan (RAP) which is utilized with MPDS to determine the appropriate resources to send to a call and how the units are to respond. Media:RAPMatrix.pdf
