Details

Whereas none of the new or existing level 3 trauma hospital construction plan in rural British Columbia (B.C.) include plans or designs for onsite helipads;

And whereas due to an absence of onsite hospital helipads, rural B.C. trauma patients experience delayed access to level 3 trauma hospitals;

Therefore be it resolved that the North Central Local Government Association and the Union of BC Municipalities lobby the Province of B.C. to legislate that all current and future level 3 and above trauma hospitals being constructed in rural B.C. receive capital funding to construct and operate an onsite helipad.
