Emergency Services

Wolfville's local emergency services - Fire, Police and Ambulance Services - are dispatched through 911. 

Know When to Call 911

A 911 emergency happens when someone’s health, safety or property is threatened and help is needed right away. If you aren’t sure if your situation is a 911 emergency it is best to call and let the experts decide whether help needs to be sent or not.

Know When Not to Call 911

911 is for emergencies only. It is not to be used for general inquiries such as calls to police concerning ongoing investigations, or calls to fire departments about community events. Inappropriate use of 911 ties up valuable resources. Intentional abuse of the system can lead to charges.
