Re­port from Ma­gog Fire Ser­vice

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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”.
