In May 2013, the municipality trained a team known under the name of  O.V.U. (Organisation du Voisinage en Urgence).  This team is responsible for the program of protection of the neighborhood “Oeil de lynx”.  Their main mission is:

  • To identify the special needs of the citizens in each sector: in times of crisis, the information collected by the person in charge of your sector will be used to quickly carry help to the citizens.  Example: handicap, health problems, medical experience.  All the persons in charge received the RCR/first aid training.
  • To inform each citizen how to be ready to provide for their need during the first 72 hours (see booklets below)
  • To manage the situation in times of crisis: a person in charge for each sector allows us to improve the communication largely.  Any information is conveyed at the command center.  The coordinator then established the priorities in order to better serve the residents.
  • To encourage the good neighborhood: to reduce the crime against the property the persons in charge encourage the citizens to take agreements of self-protection between them and to report to 911 any suspicious activity in their neighborhood.
