Medical First Response

Personnel wishing to be affiliated with a Manitoba Medical First Response (MFR) Licensed Service are required to be trained to the minimum level of emergency medical responder (EMR) and hold a valid Manitoba EMS personnel licence. Organizations that provide first response for the purpose of fire/police related situations, and on occasion render first aid, but medical first response is not the main priority, do not require Manitoba EMS licensed personnel.  Manitoba licensed MFR agencies must only use licensed personnel.

To be eligible for provincial licensing at the sub-classification of Medical First Response in Manitoba, an applicant must:

  • hold a current and valid Manitoba EMS personnel licence
  • submit a Personnel Licence Application indicating the sub-classification of Medical First Response
