Public Safety and Environment

Organizations and information to help keep you safe in your community.

The Kennebecasis Regional Police Force and Kennebecasis Valley Fire Department are services funded and shared jointly by the Towns of Quispamsis and Rothesay. Funding is weighted based on each community’s population.

Quispamsis has an Emergency Measures Plan to strengthen our ability to prepare for, mitigate, respond to, and recover from, a disaster. 

Quispamsis, along with other communities in New Brunswick, rely on various organizations and services to provide valuable information and resources.

Yard campfires

Under the Town of Quispamsis Fire Prevention and Protection By-Law No. 059, residents are permitted to have recreational fires in their yards.

According to information provided by the Kennebecasis Valley Fire Department, a recreational fire means a small, controlled, outdoor fire that is contained in a fire pit or outdoor burning appliance and is normally used for cooking, warmth, or personal enjoyment.

The Town follows guidelines set by the Province of New Brunswick on whether burning is open, restricted or closed.

Civic Address Signs

The Kennebecasis Valley Firefighters Association sells aluminum plate civic number signs for homes in Quispamsis. The signs feature white numbers on a blue reflective background and come in three sizes, depending on your street number.

The signs have proven to be a great asset to emergency responders trying to locate an address, especially in darkness. 

Signs are available for $20 - paid by cash or cheque - at KVFD Fire Station 1 and, in most cases, are made while you wait.

Environment Matters - At a Glance

  • Quispamsis has done several Tree Planting Programs over the years – an important nature-based climate solution,  and plans to enhance tree planting along its QR Trail in 2024.
  • The Town has purchased and installed several solar-powered street lights as part of a Solar Street Light Pilot Program. These have been installed in areas which may not have had street lights before or in spaces where infrastructure has made installing more traditional lighting more difficult and costly to replace.
  • A Wind and Solar Mapping Assessment has been completed, with funding from the Environmental Trust Fund to identify most suitable locations for these renewable energy systems within Quispamsis.
  • Our Community Garden has more than 100 plots!
  • Quispamsis has been a long term member of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' (FCM) Partners for Climate Protection and, in 2018, joined the Climate Change and Energy Initiative of the Union of Municipalities of New Brunswick (UMNB) and YHC Environment along with several other NB Municipalities to establish a Community Greenhouse Gas and Energy Action Plan and a Corporate (Town) Greenhouse Gas and Energy Action Plan.
  • In 2021, the Town started its journey with QUEST’s Smart Energy Community Accelerator Program to help move the Community & Corporate Energy Plans forward.
