Ambulance Services
In 1993, the Six Nations Emergency First Response Team was established under the Six Nations Volunteer Fire Department to address the rising need for emergency medical services for the Six Nations community. This served to prove a need for an Ambulance Service of our own.

On January 01, 2000, the Six Nations Ambulance Service was born. SNAS became an Advanced Care Ambulance Service on October 15, 2009 with the launch of the first ALS shift.

The dedicated and caring employees of the Six Nations Ambulance Service work cooperatively under the regulations of the Ontario Ministry of Health, the Ambulance Act, Coroner’s Act and strive to provide the best ambulance service available, always remembering “the Patient Comes First.”

As part of the licensing provisions to operate an ambulance service, Six Nations Ambulance must undergo a Ministry of Health service review every three years, where MOH officials spend three days at the service, riding with the crews, scrutinizing paperwork and procedures. Following these three days, the MOH team writes a detailed report including any recommendations for improvements and then recommends the renewal of the ambulance service license. This is to ensure Six Nations Ambulance is meeting or exceeding the provincial standards of a land ambulance service.

Six Nations Ambulance Service is a 24 hour, seven day a week operation with Advanced Care Paramedics and Primary Care Paramedics (all of whom are IV therapy trained). There is one in-service vehicle, one spare vehicle and one First Response Vehicle, usually manned by an Advanced Care Paramedic for 108 hours per week. On certain occasions, both transport vehicles may be put into operation at the same time otherwise; they are rotated on a weekly basis.
