911 is the emergency telephone number which connects you to Ambulance, Police or Fire in an emergency situation. Calling 911 helps you reach emergency services when you require immediate assistance. In the case of a fire DO NOT use your own phone in the house. Exit the house IMMEDIATELY and either call from a cell phone or a neighbours phone.
Get out, call us out and stay out!
Call 911 immediately at any sign of a perceived emergency so we can assist you. It is better to be turned back if we are not needed! Please give the following information to ensure a speedy response and remember to speak slowly and clearly when you explain what's happening.
Your municipal address (e.g. 555 Maces Bay Road, Maces Bay)
Your full name
Type of emergency
Your phone number
Do not hang up until the 911 operator tells you it's OK to do so. That way, you can be sure that the operator has all the information to get help to you fast!
Have someone at the side of the road to help arriving Firefighters identify your house. At night waving a flashlight is an excellent idea.
Yes we do for our loacal area. For more information or to arrange for the Fire Prevention Officer to visit you, please contact cpt. Linda Robichaud or Lt. Craig Ward at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Burning Permits are required for most outside fires within our coverage area.
The Province of New Brunswick may ban open burning due to weather conditions. You can check this page or call 1.866.458.8080 for further information.
The Musquash Fire Department discourages the burning of grass and other material due to the risk of damage to nearby buildings and other property. If you feel you must still burn, please follow the guidelines (including the fire being supervised at all times, have a water source on hand, and have two pointed shovels on hand) and exercise extreme caution. If the fire starts to get away from you do not hesitate - CALL 911 Immediately!
Cell phones are carried by the majority of the population and ICE is a very simple, yet important method of contact for you or a loved one in case of an emergency. Simply program the number of a contact person or persons and store the name as "ICE". The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when they went to the scenes of accidents, there were always cell phones with patients, but they didn't know which numbers to call.
The idea is that you store the word "ICE " in your cell phone address book, and with it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency ". In an emergency situation, Emergency Services personnel and hospital staff would then be able to quickly contact your relative or friend, by simply dialling the number programmed under "ICE". For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.
Remember though that cell phones can be a distraction while driving. Please DO NOT use your cell phone for talking and text messaging while driving. Pull over and stop before using it. The life you save may be your own.
