A 911 service is available in Mount Lorne for emergency police, fire, and ambulance responses.
Tell the 911 operator you have a fire or other emergency and need the Mount Lorne Volunteer Fire Department (otherwise you will get the Whitehorse Fire Department and this wastes valuable time).
The 911 operator will activate the paging system and a volunteer will answer and ask the following questions:
- What is the exact location of your emergency?
- What is your phone number in case we are disconnected?
- Where are you calling from?
- What is your emergency?
- Is everyone safely out of the structure? (if it is a structure fire)
- Can you send someone to the end of your driveway so we can find you faster?
- Get out and stay out - help is on the way.
We hope you never need to use the 911 emergency system. Follow these instructions and help will arrive as quickly as possible.
