The Abitibi-Ouest region is covered by twelve fire safety units, including eleven municipal and one intermunicipal. These departments each employ between 14 and 29 firefighters for a total of 219 volunteer firefighters in the entire area.
A fire safety cover plan and inter-municipal agreements make it possible to significantly minimize losses caused by fires and increase the effectiveness of the public organizations responsible for fire safety throughout the region.
Our firefighters are dedicated citizens! Most serve on a volunteer basis and all are active in their communities, particular as regards public safety for public gatherings and events.
Law enforcement services are assured throughout the region by the Sûreté du Québec, Abitibi-Ouest MRC station.
