The 911 Program consists of two components, Civic Addressing and Central Emergency Reporting Bureau (CERB) services:
The 911/Civic Addressing program maintains the records associated with the municipal addressing of all occupied properties throughout the County as well as the database of road names for the County. These databases are used for the prompt dispatching of Emergency Services when required. All signage required for the system is provided by the Public Works & Engineering Department to the local municipalities on a cost recovery basis. The Public Works & Engineering Department currently retains the responsibility for Civic Addressing.
The second component of the 911 Program is the provision of Central Emergency Reporting Bureau (CERB) services. The CERB is a contracted service, which is currently being provided by the Ontario Provincial Police from North Bay, Ontario.
