Abstract: Alliance of Canadian EMS Honour Guards & E.V.E.N.T Reporting



What Will We Be Discussing?

Alliance of Canadian EMS Honour Guards

What does the ceremonial and memorial representation of Paramedics look like? What kinds of traditions and customs have found a place in EMS culture? Across Canada there are at least 26 commemorative units linked together by The Alliance of Canadian EMS Honour Guards. A group with a collective mission: To enhance the professional image of Paramedics by unifying the EMS Honour Guard Units in Canada.


E.V.E.N.T. collects data submitted anonymously by EMS practitioners. The data collected will be used to develop policies, procedures and training programs to improve the safe delivery of EMS. A similar system used by airline pilots has led to important airline system improvements based upon pilot reported “near miss” situations and errors.
