Halton Region opens new Paramedic Services stations in Oakville and Milton

On November 5, 2020, Halton Region officially opened two new paramedic stations in Oakville and Milton. Paramedic Services Station #15 at 289 Woodside Drive, in Oakville and Paramedic Services Station #16 at 6650 Fifth Line, in Milton are now operating to serve these growing communities.
“Behind every call to 911 for emergency medical care in our community, there is a Halton paramedic responding on the frontline,” said Regional Chair Gary Carr. “These new stations help support the important work our paramedics do to deliver timely, advanced medical care to our residents.”
Both stations offer service 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are in strategic locations within the community to reduce response times and address increasing call volumes as the local population grows. The facilities feature advanced technology including drive-through bays to reduce noise and downward projecting exterior lighting to minimize impact on nearby properties. The Southwest Oakville station serves Halton residents from Great Lakes Boulevard to Kerr Street and the QEW to the Lake Ontario while the Milton Station at 6650 Fifth Line serves residents from Thompson Road to Hwy 407 and Hwy 401 to Britannia Road.
“The stations provide our highly trained paramedics with a presence in these communities and allow us to respond more quickly to medical emergencies and provide urgent care to area residents,” said Paramedic Services Chief Greg Sage. “We are committed to serving the Halton community and helping to keep our residents safe and healthy.”
Paramedics are an integral part of the Halton community with a dedicated team of nearly 300 primary care, advanced care, bike, community and tactical paramedics that respond to more than 50,000 calls and transport more than 30,000 patients to area hospitals each year. In addition to supporting residents with around-the-clock emergency medical care, they provide important educational supports to our community including CPR and AED training.
Paramedic Services has also been critical throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, responding to emergencies on the frontlines in the Halton community, and working with local physicians, registered nurses and other first responders to provide on-site COVID-19 testing to our most vulnerable residents in our local long-term care and retirement homes.
