Emergency Information
Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

‚ÄčThe Interior Health Authority as a whole is responsible for ensuring that critical health care functions are resumed as quickly as possible; to liaise with the Province during an emergency; and to cooperate with and provide assistance to other health authorities where an emergency event requires sharing resources.

During emergency events, Environmental Public Health focuses primarily on addressing the needs of regulated facilities, local governments, the media and indirectly, the public. 

On the following pages you will find environmental health information related to air quality, drinking water quality and food safety due to wildfires, floods/landslides, or power loss and emergency preparedness.


As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
