Québec National Civil Protection Plan
National Civil Protection Plan

   * Objectives of the Plan
   * The Response Framework of the Plan
   * Resorting to the National Civil Protection Plan

Objectives of the Plan

The Civil Protection Act, mandates the Minister of Public Security to establish and update a Québec's national civil protection plan (NCPP). The Minister must do so with the cooperation of other Ministers and heads of government agencies concerned.
The National civil protection plan seeks to implement measures:

   * to prevent major disasters or attempt to mitigate their impact;
   * to improve preparedness for effective response when disaster strikes;
   * to promote joint response activities and a prompt return to life as normal.

The Plan makes provisions for the following:

   * shared responsibilities among government departments and agencies, based on respective jurisdictions;
   * organization of government resources in order to respond to different types of disasters;
   * a simplified decision-making structure.

The effectiveness of the Plan depends on a strong civil protection system. This system's strength stems from on four factors:

   * greater accountability on the part of citizens for their safety and protection of their property;
   * improved preparedness and more autonomy for municipalities to handle a disaster;
   * regional partners working together with the community;
   * integrated government organization to ensure maximum use of resources.

Citizens and municipalities are the first line of responsibility for civil protection. The purpose of the plan is to support them in major disaster situation.
Governmental authorities will therefore be able to find solutions to problems regarding:

   * the ability to simultaneously respond to a vast number of needs that sometimes extend beyond the normal intervention areas of the government's departments and bodies members of the Organisation de sécurité civile du Québec (OSCQ);
   * coordination and organization of the response of new partners who may be unfamiliar with civil protection response methods.

The Response Framework of the Plan

The government of Québec has organized its civil protection actions on the basis of fifteen needs likely to arise in the event of a disaster. The needs laid out in the Plan are referred to as "missions". Each mission is under the direction of a government department or agency, which has activities similar to those set forth in the mission, or which has the expertise necessary to successfully accomplish the task at hand.
Missions Organizations Responsible
Economic activities Ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation
Financial assistance Ministère de la Sécurité publique
Bio-food Ministère de l'Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation
Communications Ministère des Relations avec les citoyens et de l'Immigration
Electric power Hydro-Québec
Water, hazardous and residual materials Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs
Energy Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune
Massive evacuation, reentry and security Sûreté du Québec
Housing Société d'habitation du Québec
Telecommunications network Ministère des Services gouvernementaux
Health Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux
Support for the OSCQ Ministère de la Sécurité publique
Support services for disaster victims Ministère de la Sécurité publique
Technical support to municipalities Ministère des Affaires municipales et des Régions
Transportation Ministère des Transports

Resorting to the National Civil Protection Plan

The Plan is based on a joint action approach and on the responsibility of departments and agencies that are part of the plan. In a situation of a major sinister, the associate deputy minister of the Direction générale de la sécurité civile et de la sécurité incendie of the ministère de la Sécurité publique acts as the government coordinator.

Plus the format is better over there.  (Not easy to copy such heavy format, yes.)

No place for comments, though. ;-)

You arm yourself to the teeth just in case.  You don't leave the gun near the baby's hand.

How will they test the plan?
  Sorry if I'm starting out with blood in my eye but my own city has "a plan" but no one talks about it.
 Tests have been educational and productive but not usable.
 The computer system for one part of the plan - I can not get them to let my wipe it out and restre it. They are afraid I will break it. What is a laughable or sad is that I am one of two reposible for fixing it in an emergency.

 I like the outline of the plan and the areas of responsibiligy - but as Lugon said - "no area for comments"

 The powers that be seem to have a frame work but what about the citizens?


What about citizens ??
Got to be patient (lol)

I will convey all constructive comments.


constructive comments
I'm sure there's enough brain power around to comment constructively, and I can almost hear folks saying sometimes a little dismantling is needed, but I absolutely get your point: not just point at what's wrong, but also suggest alternatives and fixes, preferrably doable alternatives and fixes.

We'll see if there's time and energy.  Any specific section you'd like time-generous individuals to look at?

Thanks for sharing!  This needs to happen more, I think.

Vertical and lateral coordination
Salutations Lugon,

The main problem in our plan can be better explain with the following.

We have 15 Regions, each of them have a Central National Rep.  Her/His mandate is to bring to the local levels the instruction from Top to the Ground.

In Each Regions, we have a Responsable nominated by Local authorities, her/his mandate is to bring to the Regional National Rep the grievances of the locals.

The Lateral Coordination

For each Region there will be a Lateral Coordination Officer with a lot of exceptional powers. Her/His mandate is to reach a consensus of give and take between the National Rep and the Regional Rep.

Communication is the problem.  Québec Communication is Govern by Canada, phone lines, cells, satellite, everything except HAM.

Canada has its own interests of course and are late in their preps compare to QUébec, and Québec fear that they will take advantage of the lead we have on the inventory of our resources, our distribution capacity, of our micro and macro Health management, etc..

We have a fondamental problem of Communication Juridiction.

The Bloc Québécois supported by all parties of the National Assembly of Qu.bec will ask the next Canadian gov, whoever it will be to granth the Québec Assembly the juridiction of communications.

Of course there are so much more fine tuning to make.

That is why I post this.

Thanks for your interests.


Clarification, please?
Are you he who posts at many flu forums as 'Snowy Owl'?

Question of Clawdia from the first CE Curevents
Yes I am, I cant log as Snowy, tough the ban on Snowy was only for awhile, maybe someone forgot to put me out of the hox so I logged as Pragmatik.


You witch hunt on Achak and now Pragmatik has worked Clawdia.

Just need a space to post important thing here at FW.

the ban wasn't temporary
and comments about the posters here are unwanted.

Your post is informational. If you make a single untoward comment with this account towards any member here, you are gone again. Also.

If you have an issue with that, write one of us.

It wasn't a 'witch hunt'
Unless you consider yourself a witch - I wasn't hunting anything other than the truth.

I just asked a question, which needn't have elicited an accusatory response.

[ Parent ]
I will comply Dem
The situation is becoming grave and I shall comply.

Am I looking at the web site wrong or is there not much to be said?
It's very hard to have an opinion when I can't see any detail.

Sorry Clawdia the witch ref was just a common term use in my culture
When I wrote it I had no resentment, it is just a common saying since the coming of priests in America.

BTW, Dem, I would appreciate to have my real name back even if I mean to be Pragmatik.

It is important in First Nations Cultures.

As for past behaviors, the situation now is so grave from my point of view, that I do not have time nor the will to argue or to inflame.


No problem, Snowy
I agree with you about the gravity of the situation.

Not a bad time for pragmatism . . . long past time for any optimism at all, I fear, and all pessimism seems far too realistic for that to be applicable, either.

Has the public been asked to prepare for themselves?
* greater accountability on the part of citizens for their safety and protection of their property

Citizens and municipalities are the first line of responsibility for civil protection.

"Safety and protection of their property" and "civil protection": sounds like the focus is more against crime than for stocking pantries and medicines, or are they using commonly-understood phrases meant to cover everything a family would need?
