First anniversary of the Pincourt/Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot Fire and Emergency Service
On September 6, 2021, the new fire service agreement between the Town of Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot and the Town of Pincourt came into effect. On that same day, the temporary fire station, located on Huot Street, was inaugurated while awaiting the construction of the permanent fire station strategically located at the intersection of Don-Quichotte and Saint-Joseph boulevards on the NDIP territory.
One year later, the residents of NDIP are already benefiting from a fully functional and, above all, cooperative fire safety service between the two parties. "This is an important transition for NDIP. Our goal from the beginning has been to reduce response times. We are constantly working towards this and I know that we have the best collaborative service," said Danie Deschênes, Mayor of Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot. "The first responders and firefighters already respond quickly and efficiently. Imagine when they move into the new fire station across from Carrefour Notre-Dame!" added Claude Comeau, Mayor of Pincourt. Over the past year, the Emergency and Fire Protection Service responded to 1,389 first responder and fire calls combined.
In parallel with the implementation of a fast and efficient fire service, construction work on the new fire station is progressing rapidly. The fire station project became tangible for residents with the appearance of the future facility’s metal structure. Strategically located in the centre of the island, the fire station, which will be numbered 26, will be equipped to meet the needs of the population of NDIP and Pincourt, as well as those of neighbouring towns.
The Pincourt and Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot Emergency and Fire Protection Service serves more than 27,000 residents, the second largest population in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges MRC.
