9-1-1 is the emergency number we dial when we are in an emergency. There are a number of services around the Forest City who are always there for us and London’s first responders will always be there.
Corporate communications officer for the London Police Department, Constable Ken Steeves, says that first responders play an important role in the community, “Whenever anyone requires any assistance, as a first responder, we’re there to assess the situation, take control when necessary and provide guidance.”
Steeves says the community works as a team when they do dial 9-1-1.
Rick Jefferson, public information coordinator for the London Fire Department, says “We do have a strong police force, we’ve got a strong fire department, and strong paramedics. If you were to have an emergency in this town, there would be somebody getting to you very, very quickly and competently to look after you and help you.”
All the different first responders in London are encouraging Londoners to remain as safe as possible and that if an emergency occurs than picking up the phone and dialing 9-1-1 is necessary.
