“In 2021, after the province experienced a series of devastating events, including a heat dome, wildfires, and flooding, the BC Renal Emergency Management Committee re-committed to taking action and fostering a preparedness culture. We have come together with the regional health authorities to support programs and ensure we can continue to provide care for people living with kidney disease in the event of an emergency.
Among other updates, in 2023 we updated our BC Renal Emergency Management Plan, which outlines disaster planning and response processes. This document is available on our Emergency Preparedness web page for health professionals.”
- Sarah Thomas, Chair, BC Renal Emergency Management Committee
