New Fort William First Nation Medical First Response Team to improve emergency response times – Anishinabek News

June 10, 2021

FORT WILLIAM — The Fort William First Nation Medical First Response Team recently shared information about their goals to save and empower lives during two virtual information sessions on May 26 and 27.

“We’ll be doing more in the next couple of weeks,” says Mason Morriseau, Medical First Response Team chief and Fort William citizen. “They’re basically about just to invite anybody from the community or anybody from the city that has questions about the team. And we also opened up the floor for individuals that had questions, comments and concerns about how the team will run and what we do.”

Morriseau says the Medical First Response Team will be paged along with the Superior EMS (Emergency Medical Services) whenever a 911 call comes in within the area of Fort William First Nation.

“Everybody on the team is trained to their first response level,” Morriseau says. ”With us being so close in the community, we can arrive on scene exponentially quicker than an ambulance and provide some of the important and critical measures that we have to do, whether it be starting CPR or stopping a bleed before EMS can get there.”
