(David Bell/CBC) 'Combative man' injures 3 first responders after Deerfoot Trail crash, say police Advocates say they have concerns about the safety of paramedics in Calgary after two EMS personnel and a police officer were injured during a call. One of the paramedics received a head injury and it's believed the other came in contact with Taser wires as emergency workers tried to subdue a combative man involved in a crash Monday on Deerfoot Trail. Both paramedics are now recovering at home. Man charged in assault on paramedics, police after Deerfoot Trail crash "This very easily could have been a fatality yesterday," said Mike Parker, president of the Health Sciences Association of Alberta, speaking on Tuesday. Kent Douglas Wilson, 52, is facing charges of assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault against a peace officer and resisting arrest, according to police. Parker says AHS was recently ordered by Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) to provide two days of non-violent crisis intervention training after three Calgary paramedics were injured during a call earlier this year. "We have a complete new generation of workers out there, of frontline responders, that don't have that training," said Parker. Parker says the two-day crisis intervention training disappeared when AHS took over ground ambulance service in 2009. Instead, front-line workers underwent a single day of training. EMS senior management provided a letter to OHS dated May 18, outlining the two-day training plan for its 2,800 workers across the province. There are 966 staff in the Calgary region who will have to take the program. AHS chief paramedic Darren Sandbeck says EMS staff are currently trained in techniques such as verbal de-escalation and the new program will teach things like self-defence and how to get away from a violent situation.
