Valle Ambulance District prides itself on
being a clinically sophisticated and progressive paramedic service. The
implementation of numerous clinical initiatives, including pre-hospital
12-lead ECG interpretation, drug facilitated intubations, and delivery
of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatments have resulted
in tangible improvements to the care we deliver to our community. In
