First Responders on the front lines of health care are not only working every day to deal with regular trauma and illness but now embedded in community on the front lines of Covid response. When we have the option to work from home or stay put, this group of essential workers are in the hot zone every day, all day long. It has been over a year now and they are the busiest they have ever been. During this, Nurses Week, we wish to thank all who do this day in, day out to help your communities. Featured is a true professional in our area, who has tested probably dozens the day she tested me, and I felt like I was the only patient she had that day, so thank you Carla and all your colleagues for what you do today and every day. Happy Nurses Week!

May 6, 2021 makes it a year ago today since Dylan has been missing. Truro Police Service remind us of the clothing which Dylan was wearing and acknowledge how this has impacted family and community at large. The purpose of this page has always been to recognise the work and dedicated passion that committed people of this area and beyond provide in time of need. We wish to thank all those that answered the call and who continue to do so. I strongly expect many who were close to this effort and who have been in the water and on the banks...are still feeling this impact today. From walking the banks now or still looking as you drive near the river, we will always want to find him. Know that you did all that you could and that is all that we can ask. We do not forget the hours and days you offered. And that you too, desire some form of closure. Thank you for all that you did.
Thinking of the family, First Responders and greater community on this and many other days.

North River and District Fire Brigade with the assistance of Valley-Kemptown & District Fire Brigade and Onslow Belmont Fire Brigade attended a brush fire late this afternoon. With many personnel, the fire was brought under control fairly quickly. Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia attended as well for traffic control. Great work teams.

Valley Kemptown Fire and DNR were at the scene of a woods-brush fire later today and have just finished at the scene. Quick Response and action with a robust group of firefighters helped contain this one quickly before it could have become much worse. Valley-Kemptown & District Fire Brigade

Valley-Kemptown & District Fire Brigade responded to a call of a smoke condition at a residence in their district Sunday afternoon. Two other local Fire Services Bible Hill Fire and Salmon River Fire Brigade were put on standby at their halls should they be required. Thankfully this call did not require any attending beyond the Valley-Kemptown team. At the moment this call came in, Valley Communications were taking multiple calls primarily related to brush/grass fires in Colchester & East Hants as well as other areas. Often grass fires are avoidable and take valued resources away from their stations. Please check the provincial status on the provincial Burn Safe website.

As we enter this heavy weekend...from my niece, Shayna, who has spent the last 12 years working at the Truro OCC (and now Dartmouth), thank you and all those in Telecoms (Dispatch) work for your service:
As National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week comes to an end I want to give a big kudos to the incredible people I get to work with.
Growing up as the daughter of an RCMP officer, I always felt like I had 2 families - blood and RCMP. I've never imagined any future other than becoming an RCMP dispatcher, and almost 12 years ago I was lucky enough to begin that career.
My coworkers and I work long shifts: days, nights... it doesn’t matter, we are a 24/7/365 organization. The public and the RCMP officers depend on us to be there to answer the call. We sacrifice time with our family and friends. We miss holidays, birthdays, weekend gatherings and so much more but it’s okay because at the end of each shift we hang up our headset knowing that we made a difference.
Sometimes our job is hard; we’re there during people’s worst days. When we pick up the phone we have no idea what we’re about to hear, sometimes it’s routine and sometimes it’s worse than your worst nightmare. We don’t always find out how things end before we move onto the next call, sometimes we see it in the news later and sometimes we don’t. We get yelled at, sworn at and called horrible things, but no matter what we will help because it’s our duty and we honour that fiercely. We don’t often get a thank you, but that’s okay it’s not why we do what we do. Our officers depend on us to answer the “call” (radio) as well; we provide critical information to them, send backup when times are tense, we do everything we can to keep them safe. Sometimes we hold our breath until we know they’re okay and sadly sometimes they aren’t. Because of all of this, many of us wear the scars of our past calls but we continue to answer the call because it’s what we do.
We are the first of the first responders, the one you’ll never see. We are the calm in the chaos. We are the thin gold line. 🖤💛🖤

Onyx and Cst. Milbury have served this community very well over the last number of years. Onyx deserves some time off and Truro Police Services's Cst. Milbury will bring along this new PSD very well. Exciting times!

The Truro Police Service is very proud to announce the newest member of our team, who arrived from Germany on Wednesday

He and Cst Milbury will begin training with the Halifax Regional Police K9 program next week and will become our new K9 team when Onyx officially retires from active duty.

We are currently running a name the police dog contest with the students from Truro Elementary School, and Ecole Acadienne De Truro and will select the dogs name from the students entries.

Once graduated from the K9 course, the new police dog will become the 5th police dog that will serve our community.

We will keep everyone posted once the name is selected and keep updating the new dogs progress.
