Emergency Services provided in areas of our Regional District include 911 Service and Emergency Management.  See details.

 

9-1-1 Service

9-1-1 is provided to parts of our Regional District through a contract with the Regional District of Fraser Fort George.

9-1-1 calls are first answered by Emergency Communications for British Columbia Inc., (“E-Comm”) who then transfers the caller to the RCMP or the Prince George Fire Department for our Fire Dispatch.

E-Comm is Kitimat-Stikine Regional District’s 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). This means E-Comm answers initial 9-1-1 calls and then transfers the call to the appropriate local public safety agency (police, fire or ambulance).

In BC, E-Comm is the largest 9-1-1 center and provides emergency communication services as the first point of contact for 9-1-1 callers in many regional districts across the province.
