The coordinator is the administrator of the contracted ambulance service to the EMS provider.

Chatham-Kent enjoys a unique relationship with Medavie Ontario EMS in that the licensing, staffing and Ministry of Health and Long Term Care compliance has been contracted to an independent business.  This contact is regularly reviewed and revised as needed.

As the population of Chatham-Kent ages and the physician shortage deepens, for many people the first contact with the medical community is through the paramedic crew.  We strive to provide the best level of paramedic service within the framework of funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the standards as set out in the Ambulance Act.

If you have any comments or suggestions for the ambulance service please feel free to use the direct link into the EMS Coordinator at
