FASTER (First Aid Short Term Emergency Response)

The Association facilitates a contract first aid program for its members, through which a company's needs of a first aid Attendant, on a temporary basis, can be met.

The Attendants must be current Association members at the Professional level with a valid unrestricted Level 3 WCB OFA ticket. Reliable transportation is a must, and most of our sites require steel-toed boots. We cover the Lower Mainland on a daily basis, and can make special arrangements for out-of-town employers needing coverage.
