The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is improving its capacity for emergency response and enhancing the safety for an important segment of the communities it serves by being equipped to receive emergency calls for service via Text with 911 (T9-1-1) from people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired (DHHSI) and for which the OPP is the Primary Public Safety Answering Point (P-PSAP).  

The T9-1-1 service is not intended for use by the general public and prospective users must register their cell phones with their wireless carrier in advance.

Posted to News & Notices on Apr 21, 2015
OPP Logo

The Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to offer Citizen Self Reporting, an alternative reporting option that allows the public to report specific crimes to police via the internet, anywhere, anytime.  The OPP’s Citizens Self Reporting system allows members of the public to use a computer or mobile device to report an incident without requiring an officer to attend the scene.  

Citizen Self Reporting is simple and convenient and can be used when reporting incidents that do not involve injury or a suspect, or a crime that is not an emergency. The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired.  

Visit the opp.ca/reporting to learn more.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms mandatory in all homes as of April 15, 2015

Posted to Fire Rescue, News & Notices, Services on Apr 13, 2015

By April 15, most homes in Ontario must be equipped with working carbon monoxide detectors.

The new Ontario regulations require single-family homes, and any residential building of six units or less, to have the detectors installed near sleeping areas if the building has fuel-fired appliances, a fireplace or an attached garage. The alarms must be able to be heard in a sleeping room with the door closed.

CO alarms range in price from approximately $26 to over $100 depending on whether they are hard-wired, battery operated or plug-in and whether they have additional features (i.e. battery back-up, digital display, etc.). The average mid-range plug-in/battery back-up model is between $35 and $40 per unit. Landlords and home owners will be responsible for complying with the requirements under the Fire Code.

For more information visit the Fire Marshal's CO Alarm Q&A Page.
