New Paramedic Headquarters to open in Port Elgin with Ribbon Cutting on June 18th

Bruce County is excited to invite the public to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 18th at 1:00 PM to celebrate the grand opening of the new Paramedic Services Headquarters in Port Elgin.

Join us for an exciting event at our new headquarters, located at 1241 MacKenzie Road. The event will begin with a short ceremony, followed by paramedic demonstrations and a tour of our facility.

During the event, you’ll have the opportunity to tour an ambulance and our community paramedic vehicles. You can also learn hands-on CPR techniques, try out a CPR machine, and test your skills with a demonstrator defibrillator. Our training simulators will also be up and running, to showcase your inner paramedic skills. Qualified Bruce County paramedics will be on hand to perform vital signs checks.

Construction of the Port Elgin Paramedic Headquarters began in June 2022 on Bruce County’s Lakeshore Hub property. This investment of $9 million includes a 3-bay, triple-deep paramedic station, a paramedic simulator lab, meeting rooms, and two double-head EV charging stations. The large training room can serve as an alternate Emergency Operations Centre. This new facility supports paramedics in providing exceptional service to Bruce County, now and into the future.

Bruce County Warden Chris Peabody says, “It’s with great excitement that we are pleased to announce the grand opening of the Bruce County Paramedic Headquarters on June 18th in Port Elgin. This facility is a key long-term investment in emergency services for our region. We are ensuring that our County Paramedics are fully equipped with the training tools they need to deliver emergency care and valuable community paramedicine services for Bruce County residents.”

Bruce County Deputy Warden and Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau adds, “With easier access to Highway 21, this new paramedic services headquarters enhances the County’s ability to provide emergency care in Saugeen Shores and beyond. Community service enhancements like this will have long-term benefits for our residents, industries, and visitors.”
