25th anniversary of the Nelson, B.C., ambulance service station

Join us on Saturday, April 1, for an anniversary celebration at 820 Nelson Avenue.

Primary Care Paramedics responding to one of the many calls they receive on a daily basis.

Sponsored by BC Ambulance Service | Impress Branded Content​As Canada’s first provincially-operated ambulance service, the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) provides emergency pre-hospital treatment and transportation by ambulance to the public and visitors to BC.

Serving an area of almost one million square kilometers, BCAS is the largest provider of emergency health care in Canada and one of the largest in North America. BCAS employs more than 4,000 trained emergency services personnel, including primary, advanced and critical care paramedics and emergency medical services dispatchers.

Through the provision of dispatch and paramedic services, expert patient care is delivered from the time a call for help is placed to 9-1-1, to treatment at the scene and transport to hospital.

We are proud and active members of the communities that we serve. This is why we are excited to invite everyone from the Nelson community and surrounding areas to join us during our 25th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the BCAS Nelson Station at 820 Nelson Avenue.

We will be hosting an Open House for everyone in the community, from young kids to senior citizens, to take a look inside the BC Ambulance Station that has proudly served them for 25 years. You will have an opportunity to meet your local paramedics and, if interested, talk about a potential career as a member of the BC Ambulance Service.
