October 9, 2020

The plan to establish a first responder department in 2020 has been postponed, partly due to the pandemic. However, La Pêche firefighters began their first responder training in late September. The training includes 60 hours of classes and will continue until mid-December. CISSSO will train 29 firefighters from four fire stations to provide certain medical emergency services to residents in order to support the ambulance service.

The first responders department should be up and running by January 2021.
