As a disaster and emergency management resource, the MMU team is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In case of emergency, a formal request process for activation of the MMU is in effect. This process is mediated through the Ministry of Health Emergency Management Unit or Health Emergency Management BC.
If this is an emergency, please contact your local hospital administrator on call.
Operational leaders from BC's six health authorities may request activation of the MMU to their community. The Mobile Medical Unit team also works with the Provincial Advisory Committee to determine deployment opportunities each year.
Event and festival organizers may also wish to use the MMU as part of medical services plans where large groups of people are present and/or high-risk sporting activities are taking place.
For planned requests of the MMU and all other inquiries, please Contact us.
