Sask911

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.

About Sask911

The Sask911 system is a program funded through a monthly fee on telephone lines and wireless devices.

Emergency calls for police, fire, rescue or emergency medical services are taken by trained 9-1-1 operators. These trained call takers determine the nature of an emergency and transfer the call to an emergency dispatch operator.

In Saskatchewan, 9-1-1 calls are taken by Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in Regina, Saskatoon and near Prince Albert. The cities of Saskatoon and Regina (through their local police services) manage the PSAPs in their respective communities and answer 9-1-1 calls within their municipal boundaries.

The 9-1-1 calls for the remainder of the province are answered near Prince Albert at a PSAP managed by the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency.

PSAP manages the Provincial Emergency Communications Centre (PECC) both as a 911 call-taking centre and as the dispatch agency for rural fire departments. It also provides call-taking, status keeping, and dispatching for the provincial Ministries of Environment, Highways, Justice, Corrections, and Finance.

If a local fire department wishes to hire a Single Engine Aircraft Tanker (SEAT) plane, they should contact the Provincial Duty Desk by:
