Paramedics: Life on the Line

This gripping documentary series follows the paramedics and dispatchers at British Columbia’s Emergency Health Services, from the highly pressurized dispatch control centre to the crews on the street.

Paramedics: Life on the Line takes us to a place we never hope to be – the front-line of emergency medical care with the paramedics and dispatchers of British Columbia’s Emergency Health Services. This gripping ten-episode documentary series follows call-takers and crews from dispatch to the streets, as they deal with the unthinkable each day. From the team that created the acclaimed Emergency Room: Life and Death at VGH, this “prequel” opens our eyes to the emergencies happening around us every moment. We see the impact they have on the health of the patients, to the paramedics themselves where minutes – even seconds – can make all the difference when life is on the line.
