9-1-1 is the only number that needs to be called during an emergency at Palliser Park. Dialing 9-1-1 on a payphone does not require any coins.
While cellular service remains a problem for Palliser Park both at the marina and during the busy season, SaskTel has assured us that cellular calls to emergency services take priority. A cellular call to 9-1-1 will go through, regardless of how busy the service is.
That being stated, in case of emergencies, land lines are available at the Pool, Concession, Golf Course, Marina Store, and the Admissions Gate during business hours.
For times after business hours, there are also two payphones in the Park. Please familiarize yourself with the location of the payphone nearest your campsite:
In the event of an emergency and these payphones are not quickly accessible, some cottage owners have land lines as well. Do not hesitate to seek assistance!
When calling 9-1-1 from the park, remain calm! Remember - quick, accurate information saves lives.

The tank sits on a trailer that requires a vehicle with a 2-inch ball in order to move it. Please familiarize yourself with the current location of this tank prior to any emergency situation.
