About Us

First Response Ontario (FRO) is a professional emergency medical service provider to special and sporting events, film and television productions, and industrial sites across Ontario and beyond.


The FRO Difference: Since 2006, First Response Ontario is the only non-governmental organization to voluntarily and publicly commit their adherence to Ontario Regulation 257/00 Part III which sets forth the pre-requisite requirements for employment as a Paramedic.


On April 1, 2020 changes to Ontario's Ambulance Act came into force restricting use of the title "Paramedic" to individuals while on-duty with a municipal ambulance service. No other health profession has their title restrictively tied to their employer rather than the individual who possesses the certification/license (such as Nurse, Doctor, or Respiratory Therapist). While FRO has maintained all equivalent scope of practice and educational requirements as our municipally employed colleagues, we may no longer hold out our professionals as Paramedics. FRO is embracing this opportunity to re-title our identity to better reflect the extensive post-secondary educational requirements to work in the pre-hospital care. FRO's Paramedics shall henceforth be referred to as Paramedicine Practitioners.


Our team of industry experienced practitioners will give you peace of mind knowing that professionalism and clinical excellence are among our highest priorities.
