A Simple Way to Help BC Ambulance Service Help You Better

In the BCCPD’s August 2011 e-newsletter we announced a joint project with the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) – the creation of a simple one-page form that enables people with disabilities and seniors to voluntarily and confidentially provide BCAS with information that will help them respond better to your needs in an emergency. Information about the form was also in our Transition magazine, fall/winter 2011.  Since we announced this initiative, the BCAS has reported receiving “a flurry of completed forms” from individuals and they are anticipating and welcome more.
