Awards and Recognition

Ambulance New Brunswick Receives National Award of Excellence

In June 2015, our Medical Communications Management Centre (i.e. ambulance dispatch centre) was named “best in class” nationally at the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada annual conference in Niagara Falls, ON. The award of excellence for an innovative technology or treatment was for the RECOL technology we use in our dispatch centre to enhance the systems in place today. MCMC operations manager Joel LeBlanc created the technology. Since 2013, MCMC has been using RECOL to streamline information, reduce unnecessary ambulance movement and enhance the systems and technologies we use today.

Joel is photographed here with Yvon Bourque (ANB Director of Operations and Deployment) and Erik Sande (Medavie EMS President).

The honour comes from the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada (the organization representing EMS leadership across Canada.) The EMS Award of Excellence recognizes the unique work ANB is doing within the larger NB Trauma Program, and it is a testament to how well every aspect of our operations works together to improve outcomes for our most seriously-injured patients.
