Update: I’ve just had a call from the RCMP saying that everything is back up and working again. I haven’t tested the 911 system or called long distance but I’ll take his word for it.
Update: If you have an emergency and require 911, please phone the 283-2227 RCMP office #. The dispatch call-through to Comox is not working. The RCMP have someone at the office who will answer the main phone and help you. Doors are also open if required, but please phone 250-283-2227 first.
We have been advised that the 911 systems in Gold River are currently down. Local calls seem to be working so if police assistance is required please contact the non emergency line 250-283-2227 and a prompt will direct you to a dispatcher. Telus is aware of the issue. Thanks.
