Intermunicipal civil security agreement and implementation of a new automated alert system

Yesterday, on January 22, the Town of Pincourt and the municipalities of Très-Saint-Rédempteur and Pointe-Fortune reached an intermunicipal agreement on civil security. This agreement proposes an innovative approach that will enable each municipality to comply with the Civil Security Act and its related regulations, ensuring a planned, adapted, and coordinated response to real or imminent disasters within their respective communities.

A heartfelt thank you to the three municipal councils for seizing the opportunity to develop a partnership to the benefit of their citizens. Special thanks to Madam Mayor of Très-Saint-Rédempteur, Julie Lemieux, and to Mayors François Bélanger (Pointe-Fortune) and Claude Comeau (Pincourt). My gratitude also extends to Mr. Éric Martel, the premier manager in resilience, risks, and disasters in Quebec, for his commitment, as well as to Mr. Yannick Hémond, a professor in the same-named program at UQAM, for his speech and presence during the signing of the agreement.

A multi-municipal approach that stands out
The agreement between Pincourt, Très-Saint-Rédempteur, and Pointe-Fortune includes a multi-municipal committee responsible for planning. This committee will consist of elected officials and the general management of the signing municipalities, offering guidance based on the four dimensions of civil security (Prevention, Preparation, Intervention, Recovery).

The increasing frequency of weather-related disasters requires additional measures to meet, inform, support, and empower citizens regarding the necessary actions to address disasters. The alliance between the three cities will support this new reality and share the responsibility for civil security.
