WRH Teams Up With City Of Windsor For Emergency Response System

Windsor Regional Hospital along with the city have submitted a funding application to the provincial government.

Hospital CEO David Musyj says they're looking to receive partial funding for an Emergency Response System.

He says the system would notify hospital and city workers along with the community if an emergency occurs.

Musyj says a prime example would be the recent flooding event.

He says it's a useful tool.

"All I know is right now if we shared, it's $30,000 a year to keep up the system but we're hoping once we move ahead, we'll have other agencies that will want to be part of it as well which will offset the cost," says Musyj.

Musyj says the hospital and city should find out in early 2018 if they're application has been approved.

He says if approved, implementation of the system would take place sometime in 2018 or 2019.
