Minister Haggie Provides Update on Ambulance Service in the Conception Bay North Region

The Department of Health and Community Services advises that Fewer’s Ambulance service will take over from Moore’s Ambulance service in the Conception Bay North region. This service covers an area from the Trans-Canada Highway to Harbour Grace, and will operate from the already established bases in Harbour Grace and Clarke’s Beach.

Fewer’s has committed to providing the same ambulance service Moore’s was previously contracted to provide. Currently, Fewer’s owns and operates the neighbouring Young’s Ambulance Service, also in Conception Bay North.

Area residents are assured there will be no disruption in service. Area residents should call 911 for emergencies.

Fewer’s has agreed to work with the department to ensure Moore’s employees who are owed retroactive wages are paid.

The Honourable John Haggie, Minister of Health and Community Services, will be available to speak to media today (Thursday, April 4) at 10:00 a.m. The availability will take place in front of the House of Assembly.

“Reliable and responsive ambulance service is essential for all residents of our province. People living in the Conception Bay North region are guaranteed there will be no disruption in service when our relationship with Moore’s ends. I also want to reassure Moore’s employees who are owed retroactive wages that they will be paid by the new operator.”
Honourable John Haggie
Minister of Health and Community Services
