Worried individuals are encouraged to contact the City of Belleville Fire Communications dispatch number at 613-962-2010 and provide their name, phone number and the residential property of concern.

“There are sandbags and sand ready for deployment,” assured Fire Chief Mark MacDonald. “As with previous flood events, we are monitoring the water levels closely and are aware of which properties are impacted first.”
