About Us

This group consists of two collaborating groups under the general umbrella of the Greater Vancouver Medical Assistants Services Team Society. One aspect of the group is the First Responders, who are trained students who act as medical professionals for their respective student body.

High School First Responders:

The Lower Mainland First Responder teams consist of a collaboration of numerous secondary schools in which students are trained up to the standard of Medical First Responders as set by the guidelines of the Canadian Red Cross.

The individual teams provide first aid coverage for the majority of the student population in their respective secondary school institutions, along with training and development opportunities to maintain their skills and update patient care knowledge. Teams also volunteer their services to provide first aid coverage for community events throughout the Lower Mainland.
