New Fire and Civil Security Department Chief in La Pêche
October 10, 2018

La Pêche, October 10, 2018 – At a special meeting held on September 24 in the Desjardins Room, the Municipal Council announced that Benoit Chartrand has been recruited to head up La Pêche’s Fire and Cl Security Department.

For the past six years Mr. Chartrand has been a fire safety manager for the municipalities of Grand-Remous, Aumond, Montcerf-Lytton, and Sainte-Thérèse in the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau RCM. He is a resident of La Pêche and has served the community as a volunteer firefighter for ten years, so he is very familiar with the team.

The new fire chief has training in intervention management, occupational health and safety (OHS), and administrative fire department management from Collège Montmorency in Laval. He is an accredited instructor at École nationale des pompiers du Québec (ENPQ), and continually improves his skills with additional training in areas such as civil security. He is currently completing management officer certification at the college level.

Mr. Chartrand will take up his new duties gradually over the next few weeks to ensure a smooth transition from his current position.

Congratulations, and welcome to the Municipality’s team.
