Work begins

Phase I of the conversion of the old Slave Lake fire hall on Caribou Trail into the new ambulance (EMS) facility commenced recently. Alberta Health Services isn’t calling it ‘construction,’ yet. That is expected to start in April and finish sometime this summer. What’s going on now is demolition in preparation for construction.
Slave Lake EMS has been operating out of cramped quarters in the Health Complex for many years. About a year ago, AHS bought the building from the town and announced the conversion with a $4.7 million budget. That has since grown to $6.8 million. One reason for the higher cost, says an AHS spokesperson, is more asbestos than expected has been discovered in the demolition process
Delnor Construction is the contractor.

  1. I originally thought ahs was supposed to be part of our new million dollar firehall on caribou trail. Supposed to be fire, search & rescue, bylaw & ahs. Any ideas on costs for this project towards the taxpayers “local municipal taxes” we already know ahs will charge users nominal fees to get this money back into their account.

    Shame they can’t fix the parking lot at slave lake health centre, maybe get supplies so patients spending half the night in a room can get cups of water or a snack and blankets so they can be comfortable.
