The Ville de Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville has reviewed its civil security plan to ensure an integrated and effective response to any emergency situation that might arise.
Under the Civil Protection Act, Québec municipalities must develop or update their emergency response plan. In Saint-Bruno, the plan was updated over a number of months in 2012 and 2013 by the internal municipal civil security committee (CMSC) in cooperation with representatives of the other municipalities within the Longueuil agglomeration.
An emergency plan must provide for a range of measures depending on the situation. The purpose is to be able to respond fully to the needs of victims of any kind of emergency or disaster. Such a plan comprises various components: prevention, preparation, actions and restoration of the situation to normal. Should it need to implement its emergency response plan, Saint-Bruno will be ready to assign its municipal employees to the various tasks required and to quickly call in emergency support organizations and mobilize the hundreds of volunteers involved in Saint-Bruno’s community organizations.
In addition to this municipal initiative, you play an essential role in ensuring your own safety and that of your loved ones. The best way to protect yourself is to know how to react. So let’s all be prepared for an emergency situation whether a flood, a fire in a neighbourhood, a winter power outage or violent winds. To learn more, please consult this documentation.
Ensuring the safety of its residents is a top priority of the Ville de Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
