It has become crystal clear why AHS EMS representatives cancelled a presentation to Cochrane town council on Dec. 5.

Randy Bryksa, EMS associate executive director, director Curtis Swanson, and AHS EMS manager Chris Baker were scheduled to provide council with an update on emergency medical services in the community. It was rescheduled at the last minute until the New Year.

Since then, Alberta Health Services has confirmed a workplace investigation is underway regarding some EMS management practices in the Calgary Zone, which includes Cochrane. 

AHS officials declined to say how many people are part of the workplace investigation, or whether the people involved have been suspended or terminated.

The news came just one day after it was confirmed that Dr. Rosana Salvaterra and Dr. Jing Hu, Alberta's deputy chief medical officers of health, had resigned.
