Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice

Emergency Preparedness | Clinic Toolkit

The best time to plan for a disaster is before it happens.
Just in time for both wildfire and flooding season in the Kootenay Boundary region, we've launched an Emergency Preparedness toolkit for clinics.
In addition, we're offering support for the development and implementation of emergency preparedness plans, which includes sessionals for providers and office staff for their time completing the work. 


What is in the toolkit?  

Practical resources to help clinics take a proactive approach to preparing for and recovering from an emergency (wildfire, flood, internal threat, etc.) that impacts their operations. The resources assist clinics to develop evacuation, shelter in place, and incident recovery plans. They also contain information about practicing and reviewing your plan, including emergency drill scenarios and practice checklists.
