Report from Magog Fire Service
The Magog fire department made its annual 2013 report public last Wednesday, June 18th. “The money invested in fire prevention is beginning to bear fruit,” commented Daniel Oligny, the fire prevention captain. The number of fires in buildings leading to damages has continued to decrease, going from an average of 25, between 2009 and 2012, to 16 in 2013. The captain commented that it was a number of factors that led to the decrease. “Response times are faster and educational efforts with the public are allowing us to reach our objective of reducing the loss of human life or material damages linked with fires.”
The complete report can be found on the internet site of the City of Magog under “Securite publique”.
