‚Äč  GHS's First Responder Team was the first to be established in Peace River School Division.  In the 2012-2013 school year,   we presented this incredible opportunity to  our students to gain first hand experience in emergency medical services ,and to provide immediate medical care to our school community.

 Our team consists of a maximum of 15 high school students trained by EMS  professionals  in the areas of pre-hospital care assessments, Extended Standard First Aid (adult and child), CPR, Automated External Defibrillation (AED), and Oxygen Administration.    


"Program content has been reviewed and approved by Dr. C. Lewis, Medical Director, Alberta Health Services EMS North Zone. Our responders follow the treatment Medical Control Protocols (MCP's) established for our provincial Medical First Responder’s (MFR’s)."  (High School First Responder Teams
