The Northwest Regional Communication Center (NRCC) is the primary service answer point for most of north-western Alberta (see the map to the right). This is an area covering 286,875 square kilometres, or 43% of the total land mass of the province.
The dispatchers transfer calls to the appropriate agencies and they dispatch over 60 Fire Departments.
1. From a landline:
2. From a cell phone:
Even though dispatchers can see the location information of where you’re calling from, sometimes the caller is not at the location of the emergency! That’s why dispatchers will always ask you to confirm the location. Emergency Crews have a much quicker response time if they have the proper information.
In addition, dispatchers will ask for a description of the situation. This is to ensure that adequate resources are responding to the emergency.
