In an emergency where every second counts, the rescue and the pre-hospital care that is given to a person can be crucial and can make the difference between life and death. An emergency can strike us at home, work, at a camping site, in the mountains or when it is least expected. This is why it is really important to be prepared to make that difference.

The provision of emergency medical services in rural areas poses many challenges. The remoteness and inaccessibility of some rural and wilderness areas significantly reduces the capacity of EMS agencies to respond to a patient in need. Other challenges include recruitment and retention difficulties, aging infrastructure, communication technology problems, lack of access to emergency centres, and continuing education.
