The city of Laval is said to be looking into the situation following a proposal to create a volunteer first responders service.
The suggestion comes from such a volunteer who lives in Laval, but works in Cote St Luc.
Urgences Sante says its average response time in just over 7 minutes in both Laval and Montreal.
Emmanuel Stavrakakis is pushing for the all-volunteer first responder service.
"You administer oxygen, you immobilise the person if they fell, you control bleeding", Stavrakakis told CTV News.
He says it would cost 5-million dollars to buy trucks and equipment, plus 2-million to run the Laval service every year with roughly 3-hundred volunteers.
The city of Laval says it prefers is to train firefighters to be first responders.
Montreal firefighters are trained as first responders.
