 卑詩省(正名為—不列顛哥倫比亞省) 的平均消防員年薪為58,537美元,或每小時30美元。這大約是該國工資中位數的1.8倍。初級職位起薪為41,000美元, 大多數有經驗的人員工資高達82,000美元。是全省最高收入的一群(全加平均年薪工資為四萬加元)。



初級護人員的工資可能因你是救護車服務人員還是在一般工業機構工作而有很大差別,平均工資範圍大約為每小時20美元至30美元。



楓葉救護車服務就是加國公民及居民,每次出動都要收費, 非居民收費更驚人, 香港人在香港真的幸福, 隨便召用, 分文不收。

2. Persons with no valid BC Care Card (e.g. visitors to BC/non-residens, as well as work related injuries, claims under RCMP, and other federal agencies).
$530 flat fee (ground service)(驚人!每次召喚, 港幣三千多元!)
$2,746 per hour (helicopter)
$7 per statute mile (airplane)

這邊召喚救謢車, 並不保證即時到塲, 控制室工作人員會好詳細問清楚要召喚救護車服務的病人或其家人, 病人的病况及緊急情度, 才調動救護車, 而病者病情或傷勢未有即時性命危險的, 需要等待其他較危重的傷病者才服務不太急的傷病者, 有時需等候超過一小時以上。
傷病情緊急有生命危險的, 救護車服務反應會很迅速, 而且會有消防車及消防車到塲協助。
救護員跟香港的不同, 訓練除一般急救外, 是負上好大部份醫生的責任及醫療工作, 會先在現塲初步治療(跟醫院溝通),才抬送病人去醫院。

老安曾因心臟病發召喚救護車, 放下電話不久, 救護車、消防車已到, 救護員初步診視,再召備有心臟消纖儀的心臟病專用救護車到塲。

  1. 心臟病發是最緊急的事故,救護車如此迅速到達,救了安兄一命,這三千多元很值得。
