Enfield and Mount Uniacke fire departments are not dispatched by Valley Communications, they are dispatched by Halifax Regional Municipality's Integrated Emergency Services dispatching centre in Dartmouth, and as such do not use the East Hants county system for daily operations. Enfield does however have the ability to operate on the East Hants system, for mutual aid responses with other stations in East Hants. Enfield and Mount Uniacke fire use the Halifax Regional Fire talkgroups on the Maritime Public Safety Radio Network (MPSRN) for their dispatching and operations.
