Paramedics Repeat the Call for Electric Vehicles! This time for Personal Response Vehicles.

October 24, 2018



The Ambulance Paramedics of BC 2018 Convention was held in Richmond over October 2-3.  The APBC Environmental Awareness and Climate Change Committee ( EACCC ) is proud to report that delegates voted 86% in favour of a resolution that demonstrates BC's paramedics want to participate in a trial of an electric powered Personal Response Unit ( PRU ).  PRUs are typically gas powered SUV style vehicles that are operated by a single highly trained paramedic.  The resolution outlines that BC's paramedics support the trial of a PHEV or EV in this role.  To assist convention delegates in making an informed decision, the EACCC arranged for a Tesla Model X and a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to be on display at convention for paramedics to peruse.  A trial of the Mitisubishi Outlander has already been underway for two years in the United Kindom.  The EACCC hopes that this show of support from paramedics combined with a similar interest within BCEHS management, will bring the first trial of this kind to Canada.
