BC Coroner’s Report Calls for Province-wide Action Plan to Address Extreme Heat Events – FNHA

Jun 07, 2022

Alert system, along with prevention and risk mitigation strategies needed following deadly 2021 ‘heat dome’ event

A BC Coroner’s Service report released June 7 is calling on the province to implement changes to the way people are informed about extreme heat events while protecting our most vulnerable residents.

In a report entitled “Extreme Heat and Human Mortality: A Review of Heat-Related Deaths in BC in Summer 2021,” the BC Coroner’s Service made three recommendations to build resilience and prevent future loss of life.

  1. Implement a coordinated provincial heat alert and response system (HARS).
  2. Identify and support populations most at risk of dying during extreme heat emergencies.
  3. Implement extreme heat prevention and long-term risk mitigation strategies.
