NLG Executive Approves Execution of Letter of Intent For the Development of Nisg̱a’a Emergency Health Transportation Program

At its monthly meeting on July 25, 2019, the NLG Executive endorsed a letter of intent that would form a unique relationship between the Nisg̱a’a Nation, BC Emergency Health Services, First Nations Health Authority and the Lax̱g̱alts’ap Village Government for the development of a Nisg̱a’a Emergency Health Transportation Program

“This is indeed a step forward for our citizens who have been calling for emergency transportation services.” said President Eva Clayton.  “This is only the beginning of what will enhance the safety and security of residents in the Nass Valley.” 

Nisg̱a’a Valley Health Authority – the health services delivery agency in the Nass Valley acknowledges that the absence of coordinated Emergency Health Transportation infrastructure contributes to a longer lapse in tertiary response and treatment times, thus  potentiating increased morbidity and mortality.

Once executed by the four parties, the non-binding pilot agreement will be implemented and developed over a 3 year period between August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2022.
