Municipal 511

Municipal511 is a comprehensive map-based road information communications and management service for municipal public works departments.

It also serves as a common operating picture (COP) for emergency response teams and management, that gets used during emergencies because is it used every day. The web app works on mobile phones, tablets, desktops, and display walls – all without having to install and maintain software.

The Township, the County of Renfrew and many area municipalities use the tool to share information on road closures due to construction or as a result of emergency situations. Check it before you head out. During emergencies, the Township also uses Municipal 511 to post information such as sandbag depot locations or other location specific information.
