2017 - BC Forest Safety Ombudsman Report on Helicopter Emergency Medical Services

This review was undertaken as part of the mandate of the BC Forest Safety Ombudsman, specifically as part of the Office’s responsibility to “identify and make recommendations to resolve systemic problems within the forest sector”.

This report initially focused on the effectiveness of the Helicopter Emergency Services (HEMS) strictly from a forest worker perspective. However, because the emergency medical transportation system is so inter-related, it was difficult to entirely separate out issues also affecting the general public. Therefore, some of the observations and recommendations contained in this report apply not only to the forestry sector but also to all residents of the province.
