We are currently taking applications for First Aid Stations in the Red Deer area. Our first aid stations are often the first point of contact for members of the public who have come across an injured or orphaned wild animal. Staff at the main facility would take the initial call and, if needed, direct the finder to bring their patient to the first aid station. The first aider would accept the patient, get the finder to complete an intake form and provide them with a handout and any other relevent information. The patient would then be generally assesed and given treatment, all under the training and guidance of staff members, and following MRWC protocols. Transport is usually arranged to the main facility within 24 hours.
Applicants must be enthusiastic, honest, compassionate, energetic, clean and organized, open to learning, a good communicator, comfortable with the public, have a love of animals, and able to handle blood, feces, and death. It is important that applicants are also at home for a good part of the day on a regular basis (retired, work from home, etc).
