Several residents joined the excitement at the fire hall this Sunday morning to welcome the UCLG paramedics to the Village of Westport. Beginning today, Westport and North Leeds will be served by a first response paramedic 7 days a week, 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. stationed at the fire hall in Westport.

You will still call 9-1-1 when you need an ambulance, however our expectation is the response time will be very quick.

The paramedics Deputy Chief and Superintendent joined the gathering at the fire hall as did our own paramedic Peter Joseph. Peter will be in Westport when on duty, and of course other paramedics will be here when he is on rest days.

Please give them the Westport wave when you see them!
