Halifax County (NS) Regional Fire and Emergency

From The RadioReference Wiki

After the creation of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) in 1996, all fire services within Halifax County came under one department, Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency (HRFE).

The HRFE consists of six divisions, with divisions 2 and 3 covering the urban areas of Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford.

For an up to date list of stations and apparatus assignments, please see:


HRFE is dispatched from the HRM Integrated Emergency Services dispatch centre. A Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system allows the dispatchers to quickly determine the correct stations and apparatus to page out for a call. The initial page out is done on VHF using Motorola two-tone sequential paging on the following frequencies:
