The ventilator has been purchased and is currently being used at the health centre. It provides trauma patients and critically ill patients, from infants to adults, with secure, reliable ventilation.

HYDRECS is the Hydro Employees Community Services Fund, a charitable trust set up in 1989 to manage B.C. Hydro’s employee giving. Last year, HYDRECS raised over $1 million throughout B.C. and is one of the largest fundraising campaigns in the province.
