On site, small surprises will be offered as souvenirs to the children and participation prizes will be drawn among those who will have carried out the fire safety rally.

“It’s not every day that you get to go behind the scenes of a fire station! In addition to visiting the facilities, this is an opportunity to meet experts in fire safety and to create links with firefighters, prevention officers and the Department’s management. We are expecting you in large numbers! said the Mayor of the City of Sainte‑Thérèse, Mr. Christian Charron.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet various City partners in public security. Information and prevention kiosks will be manned, among others, by the Association of Auxiliary Firefighters of Lanaudière-Laurentides (APALL), the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville (RIPTB) and the paramedics of the Services préhospitaliers Laurentides-Lanaudière (SPLL). ).

In the same spirit of hospitality on August 30th, the City received the visit of a delegation from the City of Niamey, the capital of Niger, chaired by the Honorable Oumarou Dogari Moumouni, Deputy Mayor, President of the City Council of Niamey.

As part of a visit to Quebec from August 23 to 30, the delegation stopped in Sainte-Thérèse for a day. Members wanted to learn more about Canadian practices to accelerate the transition to smart and eco-responsible cities.

The day was devoted to visiting significant places in Sainte-Thérèse, including the water purification station and the fire station. These visits also allowed discussions on various issues such as mobility, road safety, mobilization of financial resources, health and education.

“It was an honor for us to receive the delegation from the capital of Niger, Niamey. This visit made it possible to create links between our two cities and to discuss the respective challenges we face, while creating a beautiful friendship. While Africa represents the largest pool of Francophones in the world, I hope that this type of exchange will happen again in the future,” said Mr. Christian Charron, Mayor of Sainte-Thérèse.

This visit was part of other cultural exchanges, collaborations and sharing of knowledge between Sainte-Thérèse and other cities and countries, in particular the friendship pacts with Annecy, in France, and Lagoa, in Portugal.
