Residents on Highways 3 and 4 will soon see a reduction of emergency fire services from the city.
As of April 1, the City of Yellowknife will be reducing fire services outside of municipal boundaries and the territorial government wants residents to be a part of the conversation.
Public engagement sessions will be held online and in-person.
This event will be held from March 28 until March 31 at the Chief Drygeese Center, located in Dettah.
Earlier this month, MLA Steve Norn suggested extending the fire services in Dettah to cover the gap left by Yellowknife’s decision. But, a recent Municipal and Community Affairs report, states the community’s fire department ” has not yet progressed at a stage where the fire department can safely respond to fire.”
