New Ambulance / Paramedic Identification (Call Sign)

New Ambulance / Paramedic Identification (Call Sign)
EHS has implemented a new method for ambulance identification (ambulance call sign) that all MFR Agencies should be aware of.  This is important as MFR agencies will be required to use this call sign in the “Unit” section of the MFR PCR (Patient Care Report).
Paramedic shifts/stations are assigned a permanent call sign that will not change regardless of what ambulance the crew is working in. The ambulance will still display the physical ambulance number on the side, front and rear of the ambulance. This is simply the vehicle number, not the paramedic crew call sign.
There are three ways to find out the paramedic’s call sign:
1 – Ask the paramedic crew
2 – The paramedic’s A, B, C and D kits should have a blue tag attached with the crews call sign engraved on it. The paramedic portable radios are also engraved with the crew’s call sign.
3 – The MFR agency can contact the EHS Medical Communications Centre via TMR radio and ask for the call sign.
