Effective April 1st, 2023, 10-digit dialing will be implemented across Newfoundland and Labrador. As such, the Emergency Services Division would like to remind municipalities that this means you must dial the area code 709 when calling our 24/7 line: 709-729-3703 to speak to someone from ESD. If you have our number as a saved contact, please take the time today to make sure the area code 709 is included in the contact number.

Between April 1st and May 31st, local calls originating within Newfoundland and Labrador that are dialed using seven digits will hear a recorded announcement reminding callers to dial 10 digits.

3-digit dialing for 911 remains unaffected. The public is advised to continue to call 911 for any threat to health, life, safety or property, where an immediate response is needed from emergency services (Police, Fire, EMS, etc).

911 is available province-wide in Newfoundland and Labrador. 911 Call Takers located right here in the province are available 24/7 to connect you to the local emergency response agencies in your area.
