Rural Emergency Direction (RED)

The Partnership for a Rural Emergency Direction (RED) grew out of concerns about changes in policy introduced by Alberta Health Services (AHS) with respect to first response, 911 call centres and dispatch, and the effect this has had on Alberta’s citizens and communities. From the outset RED has advocated for rapid, local, response, coordinated dispatch, accountability, and the need to increase the involvement, commitment and capacity of rural communities in an emergency.
