How can I get involved as an independent responder?
We welcome the participation of paramedics, firefighters and other first responders. For anyone in a CanROC agency, there is an opportunity to get involved in the EMS Committee, a group which represents the voice of front-line workers in all CanROC operations. For more information on this and other committees, see our Governance. There is also the potential to work with a CanROC sponsor to perform various research activities. For further details, refer to our writing group policy.
Since CanROC is so heavily focused on the field, we also welcome front-line responders to help champion our cause amongst their peers. We are happy to answer questions and provide information to enthusiastic collaborators who can communicate CanROC’s vision and spread awareness of our current projects and operations.
Finally, CanROC’s primary focus is on the public. This means we encourage each and every Canadian resident or citizen to get involved. Even if you are a professional medical responder we welcome you to engage the CanROC Public Engagement Committee for more ways you can get involved.
