Parkland Ambulance Care is a privately owned ambulance service contracted to the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region as one of three ambulance services operating within the region.
The management team provides the overall guidance and support to the entire team of over 60 paramedics, support staff and emergency medical dispatchers.
