911 is the province-wide emergency telephone number to contact police, emergency medical services or fire services.
The Municipality of the District of Guysborough continues to maintain, improve, and build relationships with all Emergency Service providers.
Maintenance of civic addresses, and the municipal civic address database, are important to the delivery of effective Emergency Services. The Municipality provides 911 markers for businesses and residents of the District. These signs made specifically for each owner can be purchased from the Municipal Office, complete with a 2-metre angle iron post to be secured in the ground, at a cost of $20.00.
There is also a Civic Addressing By-law within the Municipality that addresses civic numbering issues as well as the naming of private roads.
Emergency Services include Fire Protection, Emergency Health Services, RCMP, and our own Emergency Management Organization.
