Prevention tips

Do you live in an area at risk? 

To find out how to prepare and protect yourself if your home is located in a zone at risk, go to the City of Montréal Website
To protect your health during and after a flood, see the flood information page. You will find recommendations posted by Montréal’s public health department on cleaning up your home after a flood, getting rid of mould in your house, cleaning up outdoors around your house, and possible contamination of drinking water. 

Psychosocial support 

Are you having a hard time or feeling distressed? If you need help, call Info-Social at 8-1-1 to talk to a social worker. It’s free, confidential and accessible 24/7. 

Monitoring 

Since the beginning of spring, the regional civil protection organization (ORSC) and Montréal’s public security centre have been keeping an eye on water levels and weather conditions. At the same time, the Coordination régionale des mesures d’urgence et de la sécurité civile du CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l'Île-de-Montréal, in collaboration with the city’s health and social services institutions, has been putting in place and coordinating measures that may be required: for example, support for an area or health facility at risk of being flooded, organizing health services for victims of flooding, etc.
