What to do if you require assistance at Craven Country Thunder Music Festival

Country Thunder has officially begun at Craven and the Saskatchewan RCMP would like to remind everyone attending to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner. Public safety is of the utmost importance and it is our priority to ensure the safety of area residents, visitors, event staff and police officers.

For festival-goers: here are a few tips for you in the event you require police assistance. In an emergency, always call 911. If you require assistance in a non-life threatening situation, please call 310-RCMP with the following information:

  • Your location - be as specific as possible.
  • Your contact information - whether it is your cell phone or a friend's, we need a number to contact you back. Stay on the phone with the call-taker until they have all the information that police need. As cell phone coverage is inconsistent, if you are able to make a call to police for assistance, stay exactly where you are as officers may need to call you back.
  • A meet-up location (if necessary) - by the main stage doesn't work, try to find a different location that isn't so busy.
  • As many details as possible - the more information, the better.

'But I need to know where my friend is…' Your calls are connected to the Provincial Dispatch Centre based out of Regina. Those that are working in the Provincial Dispatch Centre do not know who is in police custody or when they will be released. If you need this information, call the Lumsden Detachment at 306-731-4270, press 2, leave a message on the machine and someone will respond as soon as they are able.

We want to remind everyone that social media is not an appropriate place to submit complaints or information; again, please call 310-RCMP if you require assistance or dial 911 in an emergency.
