Jim Prentice's response to Question 4
Question 4: Do you support the current system of an integrated 911 service or Alberta Health Service’s plan to separate out EMS from the 911 service and have its own call centre and dispatch?
On the 911 ambulance dispatch question, I am open to reviewing this with the City. If changing the current system will drive up cost and increase response times as you suggest, then a continuation of the integrated service in Calgary may make the most sense.
