Because every second counts and our high-quality standards must be maintained, we never stop innovating technologically.
Moreover, we have developed our own program CAD (Computer Assisted Dispatch) to improve our speed and quality while treating emergency calls.
1. A dispatcher at the emergency call center validates the nature of the emergency, the phone number of the citizen and their address, as well as the location of the emergency.
2. If needed, the call is transferred to the appropriate emergency service (Ambulance, Police, Fire) while a dispatcher deploys emergency units.
The citizen is calling for a municipal emergency? The dispatcher transfers the call to our “Call center for citizens—CITAM division.
At the HCC we receive, treat, and dispatch emergency calls that require emergency pre-hospitalization interventions. This secondary service is the only link between the 9-1-1 service, citizens, and health interveners.
The HCC Chaudière-Appalaches has been an accredited business since 2002 as a center of excellence in emergency medical dispatch by the ‘International Academies of Emergency Dispatch.’
