From Monday calls to 000 because of a medical emergency may results in firefighters being the first to respond.
The program is a $47 million Victorian Government initiative. The Emergency Medical Response program (EMR) is aimed at increasing life-saving medical help in emergency situations.
All CFA brigades, where professional firefighters work alongside volunteers have been provided training under the program which will see firefighters attend life-threatening call outs in addition to Ambulance Victoria paramedics.
The co-responder program between CFA and Ambulance Victoria is designed to help protect more Victorian lives by providing life-saving medical assistance.
Ambulance Victoria says it is the result of a successful pilot, and is already well-established in Melbourne.
Mildura is one of Thirty-five CFA brigades across the state that will be implementing the EMR program.
