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.

West Hants

The Municipality of West Hants does not have a unified paging and dispatch system for fire like East Hants; stations are paged out on their own "private" frequencies and repeaters, and can also use the Maritime Public Safety Radio Network (MPSRN) "north" talkgroups, and the provincial mutual aid VHF simplex frequency 153.83


Ambulance services are provided by Emergency Health Services (EHS) (NS). Communications are on the EHS "North 1," "West 2" and "Central 1" talkgroups on the Maritime Public Safety Radio Network (MPSRN).
