Emergency Management

The Township works with the County of Wellington in providing emergency management services to its residents. Visit the County's website for information on emergency preparedness, planning, training and weather related emergencies.

Emergency Contact Information:
  • In the event of an emergency (i.e. medical, fire or police related), phone 911.
  • Township After Hours Service: For urgent Township matters that are non-medical or non-police related, phone (519) 856-9596 ext. 150
  • Road Conditions: 1.866.799.4166 (Wellington County roads) or 511 (Provincial highways).
Keeping Informed During an Emergency:

In the event of a power outage, the best place to access information is your local radio station, if you don’t have access to a smartphone. The County contacts local radio stations with closure and warming centre information.

The following radio stations should be monitored for important updates:

  • 88.8     The River (Wellington North & Minto)

  • 91.7     Erin Radio (Erin)

  • 93.7     Country 93 (Wellington North & Minto)

  • 100.1   The Ranch (Mapleton & Minto)

  • 101.1   The Grand (Centre Wellington)

  • 106.1   Magic 106 (Guelph/Eramosa & Puslinch)

  • 920      CKNX (Wellington North & Minto & Mapleton)

  • 1460    CJOY (Guelph/Eramosa)

The County will also provide updates on www.wellington.ca and on the County’s official emergency twitterfeed - @wellingtncounty as necessary.

Adding a battery operated radio to your 72 hour emergency kit is a great idea. Alternatively, you can listen to these stations, on the hour, using your car radio for important updates.
