NB finally getting advanced-care paramedics

Advanced-care paramedics are now on the job in Moncton, Saint John and  Bathurst as part of a pilot project.

The 16 paramedics offer an enhanced level of care to patients, including administering different drugs including narcotics.

This was the only prtovince without some form of advanced-care paramedic. Ambulance NB currently has 53 paramedics who have the neccessary training…but the pilot project is starting with only 16.
