The Office of Health and Resource Development (HRD) serves as a central contact point for companies, agencies and communities. Resource Development inquiries, including questions related to health service infrastructure and capacity, environmental assessments and general consultation questions, may be directed to:
The Northern Health Office of Health and Resource Development
For Non-urgent requests related to Emergency Response Plans, or emergency exercise planning/information please contact: HEMBC North Director, Jim Fitzpatrick, at:250-565-5584 or HEMBC@northernhealth.ca
For Emergency events that require immediate connection with Northern Health please call: HEMBC on-call number (24/7) at: 1-855-554-3622 or 1-855-55-HEMBC
HEMBC will notify/activate the appropriate Northern Health programs (i.e. Public Health, Acute Care, etc.) based on the nature of the event/emergency. Please include this number in industry ERPs, for the use of permit holders in contacting Northern Health on a emergency basis.
Please Do not include this number on Public Awareness Pamphlets for individual projects; the EMBC/Oil and Gas Commission's emergency number(s) is more appropriate, and the HEMBC 24/7 number is on record with those agencies.
