If you are trying to locate a family member relocated during the wildfires, this call line may help.
Interior Health has established a call line for families whose loved ones have been moved from health facilities due to wildfire activity in both the Cariboo and Thompson-Nicola regions.
“Given the sheer number of individuals needing to be moved to other communities, and in a short period of time, Interior Health has not been able to contact all families,” reads a press release from IH.
Family members can call the IH Patient Care Quality Office (PCQO) for information about relocations.
The toll-free number is 1-877-442-2001.
PCQO staff will respond to calls as soon as possible.
Individuals can also make contact by email, at Patient.email@example.com.
“A number of agencies are working closely together to ensure the safe transfer of patients to temporary accommodations. We encourage the public to monitor www.interiorhealth.ca for further updates.”
