February 11th is 211 Day Across North America

Posted to News & Notices on Feb 11, 2015

February 11, 2015 is 211 Day across North America. To mark 211 Day, the Municipality of Highlands East is asking residents to make the right call if they want or need help.

Calling 2-1-1 will provide information on your community, social and health services, even municipal and Local Health Integration Network funded services like housing, employment and mental health and addiction agencies. 

211 is an easy to remember phone number, like 911. 211 is answered by trained specialists who know your community services and can refer the caller to nearby local support. 211 has information not only on municipal social services but all our community, social, health and government programs.

211 is answered live, 24 hours a day, every day of the year including holidays. It is free and confidential. Residents are encouraged to call 2-1-1 for services like food banks if they are hungry, mental health support if they are in crisis or for the non-emergency police number if they need the police but it is not an emergency.

For further information call 2-1-1 or read more online at www.211ontario.ca

Call 9-1-1 for threats or harm to a person or property that require police, fire or ambulance services. Knowing the right number to call will help you find the right services for your situation and has the potential to reduce inappropriate calls to 911.

The Municipality of Highlands East has prepared an Asset Management Plan for its core infrastructure services including roads, bridges, water and wastewater. The Plan is intended to provide a comprehensive reference for renewing, operating, maintaining, building, replacing and disposing of the municipality’s core Infrastructure Assets. The plan is based on the guidelines provided in the Province of Ontario Ministry of Infrastructure’s Building Together Guide for Municipal Asset Management Plans. The Plan is based on currently available data and information on the core services of the municipality.
