Initiated by the Ministère de la Sécurité publique du Québec, this harmonized planning process has enabled Gatineau to work with many partners to perfect its preparation and harmonize its planning with all stakeholders concerned by a major disaster. As a result of this work, municipal authorities are now better prepared to ensure your safety in the event of exceptional flooding or a dam failure.
To prepare for any type of disaster that may occur in Quebec, visit the "Quebec Emergency" section of the www.gouv.qc.ca website. To learn more about the role of civil security during an emergency, visit www.securitecivile.gouv.qc.ca.
Recognized for its quality of life, Gatineau is a city of 291,000 inhabitants. It is located on the north shore of the Ottawa River, and extends east and west of the Gatineau River.
