From Fire and Emergency Services

“After months of negotiations with the City of St. John’s to formalize a contract for the provision of 911 call taking services for the Avalon Peninsula, the city has advised that it is not prepared to enter into an agreement based on the new Crown corporation, NL 911 Bureau Inc., having final responsibility for the service, which is required by the Emergency 911 Act. Effective today, the Provincial Government will immediately move to find an alternate arrangement for the operation of a Public Safety Answering Point for the Avalon Peninsula.”
The Honourable Judy Manning, Minister of Justice and Public Safety and Minister Responsible for Fire and Emergency Services-NL
