about medvents

The Northern Lights Medical Venturers is a dynamic and engaging program for youth in the Edmonton region who are interested in EMS and First Aid. The purpose of the program is to provide hands-on training and learning, and youth also gain invaluable leadership opportunities and experience as they volunteer to provide First Aid support to various community and Scouting events throughout the year.

Our youth work with a highly skilled team of Advisors, who bring with them their experience in EMS (Emergency Medical Responders, Primary Care Paramedics, and Advanced Care Paramedics), Medicine, and Search and Rescue.

Youth are also provided opportunities for additional certifications and courses throughout their time in the program. This includes courses such as Basic Life Support (BLS), Oxygen Therapy, Stop the Bleed, and Naloxone Administration.

The Northern Lights Medical Venturers is a Venturer Company with the 193rd Sherwood Park Scout Group, registered with Northern Lights Council - Scouts Canada and is a registered charitable organization.
