When an alert is announced by the Public Safety Officer, it is the responsibility of the public to stop, listen and follow the directives given by the officer.
The Public Safety Officer (P.S.O.) is responsible for the safety of the community at all times. It is to provide a level of adequate operational preparedness to deal with any kind of disasters or emergencies such as fire, power outages, severe storms, etc. Public Safety is in control for any community evacuation. It utilizes the local emergency services of the community, depending on the gravity of any situation it faces. The P.S.O oversees the administration and technical work associated in planning, organizing and directing the activities towards emergency preparedness along with the fire and police department. Your family’s safety depends on your own involvement in ensuring the safety of your household and your bush camps. Please be careful with fire, motorized engines, the operations of a four-wheeler and boat. Make sure that everyone always have their approved floating vests while on the water. Also, please make sure that your rifles and shotguns are stowed away properly when not in use, and that you should not be under the influence while handling a weapon. Let’s keep safe!
Chisasibi and Hydro-Québec have worked together to produce two short videos. The first one, “Teaming Up for Safety”, explains all the work done together for set up and update emergency preparedness plans, draft and maintain communication scheme, and take advantage of lessons learned in different situations. The second video, “Dam Inspection, Daily Monitoring” shows all the work and dedication of our teams involved daily in the surveillance and inspections of the dams and dykes on La Grande Complex.
