Emergency response and emergency responders, Floods, Laurentides, Statements by Members,

Crues, Déclarations de députés, Laurentides

Mr. Speaker, spring is finally here, but its late arrival has caused many riverside residents a lot of stress.

In my riding of Laurentides—Labelle, rivers like the Rouge, Lièvre and Nord rivers have burst their banks, causing considerable damage.

My thoughts are with everyone across the country who is dealing with flooding. It is important to be ready to react in any emergency. On April 14, I got to observe an exercise involving a simulated medical emergency in Amherst. The members of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve 51 Field Ambulance, first responders from Arundel and Amherst, firefighters from the northwest Laurentians fire department, air cadets from 716 Laurentien squadron, and municipal and regional authorities all worked together efficiently and compassionately. It was a privilege for me to see them at work.

No one ever wishes for disasters to happen, but if one does, Laurentides—Labelle is ready.

Monsieur le Président, le printemps se fait enfin sentir, mais son arrivée tardive a néanmoins causé beaucoup de soucis à de nombreux riverains.

Dans ma circonscription, Laurentides—Labelle, des rivières comme la Rouge, du Lièvre et du Nord sont sorties de leur lit en faisant beaucoup de dégâts.

J'ai une pensée pour toutes les personnes aux prises avec des inondations partout au pays. Il faut être prêt à réagir quand survient n'importe quelle situation d'urgence. Le 14 avril, j'ai assisté à un exercice d'intervention médicale à Amherst. Les membres de la 51e Ambulance de campagne de la réserve des Forces armées canadiennes, les premiers répondants d'Arundel et d'Amherst, les pompiers de la Régie incendie nord ouest Laurentides, les cadets de l'air de l'escadron 716 laurentien, les autorités municipales et régionales, tous ont oeuvré avec efficacité et humanisme. C'était un privilège pour moi de les voir aller.

Nous ne souhaitons jamais que surviennent des catastrophes, mais si c'était le cas, Laurentides—Labelle est prête.
