911 Civic Addresses - May 2011

Dear Christian Island Resident and Community Member,

I would like to introduce to you our new Beausoleil First Nation 9-1-1 Civic Addressing program. There has been much work completed on this program over the past three years by summer students with APS/EMS: Josh McGregor, Carly Monague, Juliana Monague, Alex King, Hillary Smith; all the staff of BFN EMS, Edna King, Adam Copegog, Myrtle Jamieson, Gloria Monague, Leon King, past and present Chief & Council and many more people that have contributed over time. We are proud of our collective achievements and excited to implement this new standardized addressing program to help mitigate risk and increase emergency response reliability.

Our new addressing is scheduled to go live on Monday May 16th, 2011 @ 0900

We have made the necessary changes of your new address with Bell Canada (911 Emergency Management Centre) Simcoe County 911 Emergency Management, Simcoe County GIS, Georgian Central Ambulance Communications Centre, Barrie Fire Communications Centre, Beausoleil Fire & Rescue Services, APS, Beausoleil First Nation EMS and Hydro One. If you require emergency assistance by dialling 9-1-1 the new changes will be in place effective Monday May 16th, 2011 @ 0900. During May 10th to May 14th you will notice a new standardized Civic Address sign installed at your residence by EMS, FIRE and APS. The Roads department will be installing the new road signs and regulatory signs. You will receive an information package this week with your newly assigned address. Please watch the chimnissing website for more information. For your information, you can always review the Christian Island Map at: http://simcoe.ca/dpt/it/gis/index.htm which will show you the newly named roads and you can even zoom to see your residence and number associated with it.

Changing your address for your driver's license, vehicle registration, health card and Outdoors Card can be done quickly and easily in one secure simple transaction. THERE IS NO COST for this service, and after you finish changing your address online, the information will be updated immediately. Website address to make these changes:
