Galiano Health Care Society started this petition

The Galiano Health Care Society (GHCS) is asking you to sign this petition to pressure British Columbia Emergency Services to ensure Galiano has 24/7 ambulance coverage.  Like many rural and remote communities in BC we have been blind sided by recent structural changes to BCEHS. Changes that have resulted in the loss of local ambulance staff which has meant unacceptable gaps in ambulance service. The consequences of this lack of service could be devastating. 

GHCS warned BCEHS in April of 2021 that the planned changes would disrupt coverage. While BCEHS assured us they were listening, they have done nothing to correct the problem.  

BCEHS must immediately review current policies to ensure 24/7 emergency service not only for Galiano but for the many other rural and remote communities experiencing the same inconsistent service. We must protect access to every level of health care in every area of British Columbia if we are to remain livable, thriving communities. 

Sign this petition to protect everyone’s rights to timely emergency service.
