Volunteer Department Information
Bear Island First Response Team is a volunteer organization that began on Bear Island in 1993. First Response members are trained to respond to any emergency situation at a level beyond basic First aid. As a First Responder we provide an essential life line in the emergency medical system. Working together with the Ministry of Health and Temagami Ambulance Service, the First Responder plays a critical role in the initial care and support of the patient requiring emergency medical services within our community.
The team is looking for volunteers to ensure this service to the community continues.
We will be providing training in February, date and times to be announced.
