Regional Emergency Measures Planning

The Regional Service Commissions will serve as the vehicle through which Municipalities, Rural Communities and Local Service Districts will plan, coordinate and pool resources on a regional basis in order to enable more effective responses to emergency situations. This will involve the development of regional emergency protocols (specifying mutual assistance agreements between communities), providing assistance in developing and maintaining local emergency measures plans, and facilitating training initiatives for regional and inter-regional emergency responses.

Warming centres

We will inform our population here when warming centres are open in our region.


Mobile App

We are rebranding our mobile app, once known as Kent Recycle, so it will include emergency measures. During a blackout, classic media (such as radio, newsprint and television) are often unable to reach our population in a timely manner. We hope to be able to contact our citizens quickly with up to date information during time of crisis such as the one we experienced during the 2017 ice storm. You will still get your waste collection schedule on the app, it’s simply a change in appearance and an addition in the service offer. If you already have the app, you won’t have to change anything. The update will be done by itself.

72-hour Emergency list

Every residence will receive a brand new 72-hour emergency preparedness poster at the beginning of 2019. Follow this list to ensure that you and your family are ready to face the next storm. It’s not a question of “if”, it’s a question of “when”. Prepare your own 72-hour kit and have it on hand to be rady for a major power outage.

Public Safety Days

One of the initiatives put in place by the Commission, in collaboration with many municipalities and organizations, is to present Public Safety Days. We have organized 4 events in 2018 and would like to thank our partners in Rexton, Bouctouche, Rogersville and Cocagne, as well as the public who were there for the success of these events. We hope to bring them back in the future!
