Paramedic Services

Update July 2, 2020

An extended heat warning issued by Environment Canada has activated the municipal Hot Weather Response Plan.

The Sudbury Community Arena and the YMCA are open for members of the public to shelter from the heat. Arena hours have been extended to 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and YMCA hours are 12 – 5 p.m. A water bottle filling station has also been installed outside the Arena for public use.

Seniors and residents who require assistance should call 311 to discuss their individual situation.

COVID-19 Update, March 26, 2020, 3:04 p.m.

911 is for emergencies only. If you call 911 for an emergency, you will be asked a series of questions to assess the risk of COVID-19 exposure. These questions ensure the safety of paramedics, firefighters, police officers and healthcare workers. 

It is critical that you are honest with the 911 operators. Emergency crews will still respond to your emergency but need to know what precautions to take.
