If you are experiencing an emergency and need police, fire or an ambulance please call 9-1-1.
E-Comm is Bowen Island Municipality’s 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). This means E-Comm answers the initial 9-1-1 calls and then transfers the call to the appropriate local public safety agency (police, fire or ambulance).
The RCMP may not be on shift when you call, please be prepared for a delay in response.
Roads and Water Emergencies
For after-hours emergencies (4:30 pm to 8:30 am) please call 604-834-0770
This includes any issue that requires a work crew's attention outside of regular hours, such as:
- water or sewer main breaks
- dangerous debris or fallen trees on a street
- damaging potholes
Down or Damaged Power Lines
If you come across a downed or damaged power line, always assume it is live and dangerous. Stay back at least 10 metres (the length of a bus) and dial 911 to report it.
Crime Stoppers is an international organization dedicated to helping keep our communities safer. They do this by providing a mechanism where citizens can provide tips related to crimes in a completely anonymous way. Crime Stoppers encourages tips by providing cash rewards for tips that lead to convictions. Rewards are also handled in a completely anonymous way. The police are never informed of the tipster's identity.
Sea to Sky Crime Stoppers is the local chapter responsible for the management of the program in the Sea to Sky corridor of BC. This includes Bowen Island, Lions Bay, Furry Creek, Britannia Beach, Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton. It is a volunteer run organization that passes leads on to local RCMP.
The Crime Stoppers tip line, 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), is staffed by trained personnel who receive, process and pass on tip information to the appropriate agency to investigate. See solvecrime.ca or visit their Facebook page: @SeaToSkyCrimeStoppers and Twitter page: @SeatoSkyCS
