An emergency can take many forms, but you won’t need to respond to every emergency in the same way. For most acute medical and personal emergencies—a heart attack or stroke, having a baby, or a serious medical injury—call 911.
For emergencies that affect personal or community health, read the latest Health and Wellness News & Events for up-to-date information. For emergencies that are not life threatening, contact the Health Centre to speak to a public health nurse.
Community Health Emergencies
The Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC) Health & Family Services provides second-level support for our water treatment plants. Operation of the Safe Drinking Water Program for STC communities includes bacterial sampling and testing, chemical sampling, community notification and education.
The water is tested every week. The Health Centre receives the test results. You will be notified if your water test results come back as “unsafe” and your water source has been placed under a “boil-water advisory.”
