Caroline Dusablon, Regional Coordinator interim emergency measures, civil security and liaison with the emergency room, gave an interview to Jean-François Guérin LCN on July 15. Following the attacks in Nice, she was able to reassure the public about the ability of the Montreal health network to cope with an influx of wounded, if a major incident were to occur.
In the event of an emergency, each municipality is responsible for protecting human life and property. This means that the primary responsibility for implementing emergency measures here lies with the City of Montréal.
The Ministère de la santé et des services sociaux de Montréal is the organization responsible for coordinating the efforts of healthcare facilities in the event of a disaster. To carry out its mission to protect the lives and health of Montrealers, a regional team in charge of emergency measures and health-related civil protection has been set up so that activities are coordinated when an emergency situation arises.
