ENFIELD: During the past week, East Hants RCMP responded to 101 calls for service.

The following is a look at some of the highlighted calls as provided by RCMP Community Policing Officer Const. Preston Burns.


East Hants RCMP responded to a report of a school bus carrying children striking the side of an SUV while turning from Highway 202 onto Slate Quarry Road in East Gore on Feb. 1.

Officers arrived on scene to learn that there were no injuries sustained by anyone on either the school bus or in the SUV.

The SUV had some damage; however both the bus and the car were able to be driven away without the need for a tow truck.


RCMP from East Hants were once again busy this week responding to approximately 30 motor vehicle collisions.

Most of which were directly related to the large snow fall that East Hants experienced over the weekend.

East Hants RCMP wants to once again urge the public to plan in advance for travel when the forecast calls for adverse winter driving conditions and to remain at home and off the roads when it is suggested by the RCMP.

Together, we can keep each other safe this winter.
