Public Safety

Updated: 8 years ago - Created: February 16th, 2012

Providing a safe environment is a priority in Ottawa Valley communities. Both professional and volunteer fire services are available throughout the Ottawa Valley. Mutual aid agreements along with a high level of cooperation between departments enhance services.

Both theOntario Provincial Police and local municipal police departments supply comprehensive police services. 911 emergency service helps tocontribute to the health, safety and welfare of communities throughout the Ottawa Valley.

Due to the close knit business and residential communities, Neighbourhood Watch and Block Parent programs are found to be successful in augmenting the resources of the local police system.
