For medical emergencies, Dial 911, give your name and civic address (your island number, see below), your GPS coordinates if you know them, plus your marina name or road access point. If you call using a mobile phone, clarify that you are not at your home address (the one that is probably linked to your mobile phone).

In case of fire, call our local First Responders directly (not 911): Call your local first responders plus your cottage neighbours with fire pumps that you’ve pre-planned your fire response with in advance. Learn how to do that here.

Your island number is your civic address. It is used to locate your property in an emergency. Write your island number down and post it in a prominent place in your cottage, and make sure your civic address sign is posted on your dock. Don’t have a civic address sign? Contact the Township of the Archipelago here.
