People with reduced mobility census
The Service de Sécurité Incendies de Montréal (SSIM) has a computerized data bank allowing it to locate and evacuate quickly, in case of a disaster, people with reduced mobility. To be registered at this computerized bank, you can go to a fire station or an Accès Montréal office, or you can call 514-872-3775. Each request is treated with confidentiality. If you don’t live in Montreal, contact your fire station to know if a similar service is available in your area!
