Emergency Services

In case of emergency including fire, police or ambulance, call 911.

You can also dial "0" and ask the operator to connect you to the police or to medical services. Emergency telephone numbers are listed inside the front cover of all B.C. telephone directories.

Tourist Alert is an emergency service administered by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The names of visitors who have urgent messages waiting for them are posted in Visitor Centres and at other transit points. If you see or hear your name listed in newspapers, information centres, on radio or TV, call the nearest RCMP office for more details.
