Nova Scotia RCMP provide update to Hurricane Fiona response

September 24, 2022
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

News release

As Hurricane Fiona moved into Nova Scotia late yesterday afternoon, the Nova Scotia RCMP enabled its Division-wide emergency preparedness measures and contingency plans.

RCMP officers responded to hundreds of calls across the province, of which the bulk included calls related to wellbeing checks, stranded motorists, downed power lines, downed trees, washed out roads and debris on roadways.

As of 2:15 p.m. today, we have not received any reports of fatalities nor serious injuries as a result of the storm. Three people suffered minor injuries in Colchester County when they became stranded in the overnight hours while off-roading. RCMP officers and the Tatamagouche Volunteer Fire Department were dispatched to locate and rescue the three people from their vehicle.

Our RCMP officers and 911 police dispatchers continue to assist our partner agencies, including Nova Scotia EMO who is leading the response to Hurricane Fiona.

Thank you to everyone for their cooperation and support of our officers, dispatchers and first response partners as we work together to help keep all Nova Scotians safe.
