No word yet on the result of a three-month trial period that saw two BC Ambulance vehicles relocated from the West Shore station to Victoria.
BC Ambulance spokesperson Kristy Anderson said no decision has been made yet if the move will become permanent.
In the meantime the ambulances will continue to operate as they did during the trial, with only one running around-the-clock from the Jacklin Road station. Paramedics working the other two peak-hour ambulances drive to the central station on Douglas Street near Uptown at the beginning of their shift, and return to Colwood in the evening.
Anderson said preliminary reports suggest relocating the ambulances closer to the bulk of the calls has resulted in some region-wide improvements in response times.
