Smart Meter Action Kit


This "Smart Meter" Action Kit contains valuable information about so-called "Smart Meters."  Conveniently, this information is being withheld by hydro and power authorities in hopes that deployment will go ahead unchallenged, without sufficient research into the health, safety and security issues involved.

The Truth About Smart Meter Fires and Failures in British Columbia - INTRODUCTION

Executive Summary (ES) for distribution - Click link to view the FULL REPORT

"It is vital that all of you help to get this smart metering program stopped NOW, not next year, NOW. Here is proof that smart meters are fire hazards. We must demand that they be removed from all homes. Even if you don't have one on your home, in all likelihood there is one near you. Fires spread.

"Why has there been denial that this risk exists? Profit, greed, corporate pressure, incompetence?

"Once we give this evidence to our MLAs, they cannot say they didn't know. They have a duty to do all they can to get these things off homes immediately, or else they become as guilty as Bill Bennett and Hydro.

  • Please, print off a copy of the Executive Summary (ES) and write your covering letter. 
  • Please, take the time to hand deliver this to your MLA - hopefully handing it directly to him/her. 
  • Please take a second copy of the ES and ask him (or the person taking delivery) to sign, as proof that they did receive it. 
"Share this information widely. We can't allow the cover-up to continue.

FortisBC Smart Meter OPT OUT Registration Notice (updated)

for FortisBC ELECTRICAL customers specifically - originally issued in August, 2013

FortisBC's Electricity Utility provides electrical service to approximately 111,500 customers in the south central part of the province including Kelowna, Osoyoos, Trail, Castlegar, Princeton and Rossland.  They also service approximately 48,000 customers through the wholesale supply of power to municipal distributors in the communities of Rossland, Summerland, Penticton, Grand Forks and Nelson.  This OPT OUT is for all of FortisBC's electrical customers.

N.B. This form is NOT for BC Hydro customers.  Although Fortis provides gas services to BC Hydro customers, it does NOT supply their electricity.  

This Opt Out Registration Notice is the means whereby you can register your choice to decline a FortisBC smart meter. It is designed to be used by anyone, with or without a "smart meter", who chooses to opt-out of Fortis B.C.'s AMI (smart metering) program.

The notice can be downloaded, printed off and distributed to friends and acquaintances in the areas above who receive their electricity from FortisBC.  Other good places to distribute this information is in health stores, health professionals' offices, businesses or any other receptive public venue served by FortisBC.

Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014

The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation.  It contains links organized into specific health effect categories.  These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.  

The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool. 


"Dear Medical Professional:

"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.

"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .

"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

Information categories contained in this package: 

  1. Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation - General 
  2. Smart Meters
  3. Interference with medical devices / Smart Meter Risk
  4. Children
  5. EHS/ES - Electrosensitivity
  6. Diabetes
  7. Heart
  8. Tinnitus / Microwave Hearing / Dental Effects
  9. Sleep and Insomnia
  10. Infertility / Sperm Damage
  11. Cell Towers - Applicable to constant low-level exposures
  12. Cell Phones
  13. Published Articles
  14. BEES - This section included due to potential impacts on human health from loss of bees and pollination
  15. Lawsuits, Scientific Statements and Letters
  16. Cancer
  17. Brain Function / Epilepsy / Alzheimer's / ALS
