    Medical First Response Dispatch Protocol Changes

    Medical First Response Dispatch Protocol Changes

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the safety and protection of our Volunteer firefighters and communities throughout the MD of Greenview remains of the utmost importance and priority. Greenview Fire-Rescue Services provides medical response through the Alberta Health Services (AHS) Medical First Response program (MFR).  As an example if there is a emergency medical incident within the MD of Greenview the most appropriate Fire Station is automatically dispatched along with an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) unit.

    The Chief Medical Officer has recently announced that Alberta Health Services (AHS) has implemented changes to the dispatch protocols for response to emergency medical incidents.  Effective immediately, automatic notification of MFR agencies such as ours will be limited to potentially life-threatening events only.  Limiting the number of firefighters dispatched to non-critical events will reduce the number of potential exposures to the public, front line staff and the responding firefighters and will increase the availability of critical services for other emergency incidents.

    Requests for response to other emergency incidents will continue as normal, Greenview Fire-Rescue Services will still respond to all major fires, MVC’s and potentially life-threatening medical emergencies.

    Council Meeting Highlights – March 23, 2020

    Council Meeting Highlights - March 23, 2020

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Council Highlights – March 23, 2020

    Doing Business in Greenview
    Grande Cache Bylaw No. 787 required mandatory business licenses in the hamlet while the Greenview Bylaw 00-324 required businesses to have a business license voluntarily. Council moved to repeal Bylaw No. 787 to provide clarification. Companies operating within Greenview will be required to have a valid development permit. In some cases, a business may require additional municipal approvals, for example, liquor or cannabis establishments. Greenview administration will have a process in place for businesses to request written notice of approval from the municipality to operate their business for these special circumstances.

    Procedural Bylaw Amendments
    To ensure that Council business can carry on through challenges such as COVID-19 and recommended travel limitations to the main administration office in Valleyview, the amendment of the procedural bylaw allows the Reeve to authorize a meeting to proceed by electronic means without 50% of the members in attendance, under extenuating circumstances. Meetings with a majority of members attending through electronic means have to be identified as an electronic meeting and made available to the public.
