WPD and Rosthern & District Ambulance endeavours to actively support the communities within each of its service areas.
Every Friday afternoon a free blood pressure and blood glucose level (BGL) testing clinic is held in Rosthern. Medical standby is also provided for hockey teams in the area, football games at the local high school, at the annual exhibition in Rosthern and other rodeos and events within the service area.
Rosthern & District Ambulance’s biggest show of community support is the annual golf tournament in support of the Rosthern Hospital Foundation. This annual tournament is held regularly in June. To date, over $500,000.00 has been donated to the Rosthern Hospital Foundation to assist in the purchase of x-ray equipment, beds, monitors and other much needed equipment for the Rosthern Hospital.
WPD Ambulance – North Battleford became the 5th city in Saskatchewan and the 12th city in Canada to become “Heart Safe”. The company took the lead in procuring and training local businesses and their staff to safely use automated external defibrillators (AED) at their place of business. To date, WPD Ambulance has placed 40 AEDs in the communities.
Local groups in all three service areas such as the Battleford’s Agricultural Society, Kinsmen Rodeo, Lighthouse, Boys and Girls Club, local food banks, schools and other worthy organizations have all been the recipient of donated time, money and training to help them with all the good works they do.
SGI approved car seat inspection clinics are held at all locations throughout the year and the staff members are involved in school talks, senior talks and annual mock accidents held during EMS Week.
