30 Minute Response Coverage Map

Establishing best practices for the deployment of services has been determined by examining certain aspects of delivery, such as geography and demographics, response times, call volumes, and outside factors such as population and facility location.

Services were strategically located in areas that would best suit the needs of the residents within a desired response time. The North American standard is first medical response within 15 minutes, transport in ambulance within 30 minutes, advanced or tertiary care within 60 minutes 90% of the time to 90% of the population.
