The Building Management Committee is pleased to invite you to an impressive presentation by the SIM (Montreal Fire Service). 

The SIM is responsible for protecting the Island of Montreal, which covers a 500 km2 area and includes some 400,000 residential, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings, as well as almost 1,900,000 inhabitants. Montreal also has a substantial underground network, 30 km of corridors, passageways and shopping malls. In addition, the downtown core includes hundreds of high-rise buildings. In light of these and other features, the SIM has various specialized teams that allow the organization to respond in timely and appropriate fashion to situations that arise within its territory.

The presentation will describe in greater detail the various steps and actions taken when the Fire Service receives a call regarding incidents in high-rise buildings. It will cover:

  1. The Fire Service and its different divisions and their connection to BOMA Quebec stakeholders.
  2. Operational functions of firefighter units (fire trucks and crews) during emergencies.
  3. Call reception unit: How to maximize resources.
  4. Call closure: Handover and transfer of responsibility.
  5. Prevention: How to prepare (preventive planning). 


The presentation will be followed by a question period.
