BCEHS Air Ambulance contract renewal


Recommended Posts

Rumor is that the Air Ambulance contract is up for renewal in British Columbia and will be awarded to just one operator to crew all bases in the the province. Anyone hear any updates?

The largest provider has been in business over 30 years. There have been numerous different Governments (Political Party’s) during this timeframe and numerous renewals of the contract.

Regardless of the party in power, the Government officials have all had one thing in common. They cannot imagine having to travel on a Ferry to Victoria.

In my opinion, it is naive to think that a winning bid, designed to best service the public’s interest, and taxpayer, could be awarded the contract. If you are not running a scheduled service to Victoria….GOOD LUCK.

Sounds like crew rotation for some operators. 

Fly you to work and bus you home.

Only difference is... the government worker is paid to take the slow ferry.

LOL
