Gatineau's Bureau de la sécurité civile falls under the Service de sécurité incendie. Its role is to ensure proper preparation in the event of a major disaster, whether real or anticipated, that would endanger the life, health or property of individuals residing within the municipality of Gatineau.
Its work will be guided by the four main principles of civil security: prevention, preparation, intervention and restructuring.
Civil security involves everyone, including residents, municipalities, businesses and governments. In this regard, we are asked to take the necessary precautions to deal with a major disaster.
