[tab1] Role and responsibilities of medical first responders

On January 1, 2011, the fire safety service of L’Île-Perrot began offering the specialized services of first responder firefighters. There are 12 first responders in the fire safety service from the former organization. In addition, all members have received training recognized by the Agence de la santé et des services sociaux de la Montérégie.

The role of a first responder firefighter is basically to care for victims in life-threatening emergencies (medical or traumatic), when every minute counts. The scope of the work performed by first responders is defined by problem-specific clinical response protocols, which specify the required course of action.

These first responders serve the municipalities of L’Île-Perrot, Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot and Terrasse-Vaudreuil, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A team of two first responders is always ready to be dispatched by the health communications centre. Upon receiving a call, they go to the scene of the incident and stabilize the victim, keeping the victim’s condition from worsening while they wait for the ambulance to arrive.

Evacuation plan

This year’s theme is “Notre plan d’évacuation, on l’a fait [we have made our evacuation plan]!” This theme encourages residents to prepare and test their family evacuation plan. Having an evacuation plan and working smoke detectors is the most effective way to protect your life and the lives of your loved ones.

An evacuation plan is a drawing of each floor of the residence, which makes the evacuation easier and increases the chances of survival of occupants and visitors. The plan must be known to all, and a drill must be conducted each year. Contact us at 514-453-1751, extension 239
