Sask911 - At Home | SPSA


The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency Sask911 system provides province-wide access to 9-1-1 emergency call taking. 9-1-1 calling is available from landlines and payphones in the province, and from cellphones and wireless devices if they are in range of a cell tower. 

If you have an emergency, dial 9-1-1. If you want to report a non-emergency matter, please contact your local agency administrative number.

Calling from a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) Phone

VOIP calls to 9-1-1 do not go directly to Sask911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP). If you dial 9-1-1 from a VOIP phone service, the call goes through a third-party answering point and an operator will redirect your call to the appropriate 9-1-1 PSAP.

It is crucial to keep your VOIP location information up-to-date. Since VOIP phone services do not provide 9-1-1 call takers with the live location of your emergency,
be prepared to describe your location for call takers to efficiently dispatch the help you need.

In the event of a power, network or Internet outage (including congestion) or if services are disconnected, you may not be able to reach 9-1-1 services.

9-1-1 Safety Tips

Be prepared. Draw a simple diagram showing the most direct route to your home, acreage or farm. Keep it close to your phone with a list of important phone numbers.

Staying calm in an emergency is difficult, but there is other information you may be able to provide a 9-1-1 call taker. You may be asked the following questions by a
9-1-1 operator, depending on the situation:

Police Emergencies

  • Are you in danger, or is someone's life in danger?
  • If a crime was committed, can you provide a description of the offender?
  • Are there any weapons involved?

Medical Emergencies

  • Is the person conscious? Breathing? What else can you tell about the person's condition?
  • Is the person able to tell you anything about the problem they are experiencing?
  • Are you able to provide emergency first aid? Is it safe to do so?

Fire Emergencies

  • Are you in danger?
  • Is anyone trapped or injured?
  • Are smoke and flames visible?
  • What type of fire are you reporting?

Rescue Situations

  • How many people are trapped, injured or in need of rescue?
  • If the situation involves vehicles, what type of vehicles are involved and how many?
  • Are there any other hazards present?
  • Is there a risk of fire?

Dangerous Goods Situations

  • Is fuel or other dangerous cargo leaking?
  • Is there a sign with an identification number or symbol on the side, front or back of the vehicle or vehicles? If so, can you identify what the symbol is?

Prank Calls to 9-1-1

  • Prank calls are traceable and will be investigated. They are a serious abuse of the Sask911 system.
  • All incoming calls are recorded. The use of profanity or abuse of the telephone system may result in restrictions on phone service, or charges under the Criminal Code.
  • If emergency vehicles are dispatched for no reason, the prank caller may be liable for the costs involved.

What to Do If You Have Accidentally Called 9-1-1

  • Stay on the line. Don't ever hang up.
  • Be prepared to answer questions. If our call takers have any concern for your safety or feel there are suspicious circumstances, they will send police to check on you.
