GlobalBC – The B.C. government has now declared a provincial state of emergency due to the wildfires burning around the province.
This state of emergency will be in place for 14 days but may be extended or rescinded as necessary.
It applies to the whole province and ensures provincial, federal and local resources can be delivered in a co-ordinated response to protect the residents of British Columbia. (view article).
Air quality advisories are still in effect in many areas due to the many fires burning. Our Pharmacy Operations Manager Shawn Sangha has some advice for reducing your health risks.
