Public safety and emergency response is key to building a healthy community. The goal is to have a safe environment in which residents can live, work and play to their full potential.
The RCMP are stationed in Haines Junction and visit the community regularly. Burwash has participated in a summer community policing program for the past several years, which allows the RCMP to dedicate more resources to Burwash Landing during from May to September.
The local Volunteer Fire Department is equipped to respond fire and other types of emergencies such as road accidents.
The local volunteer Emergency Medical Responders (EMR) are dispatched through the local health station. Please do not call individual members of the EMR.
