The mission of the Fire Department is to protect citizens by providing emergency firefighting services and prevention measures.
The municipality of Gore has twenty-one volunteer firefighters. Each year, as required by the Quebec Department of Public Security, the volunteers review their training in order to remain up-to-date with the latest safety and intervention techniques. The Fire Department has a rescue team ready to intervene in various hazardous situations. The fire hall is located beside the municipal office in the centre of the municipality.
In the past few years, in collaboration with the Fire Department, the municipality has installed twelve (12) dry hydrants in strategic locations throughout the territory. These reduce the time it takes to refill the Fire Department’s tanker. In addition, the fire department has a pumper-tanker and a specialized vehicle for fighting forest fires.
The Sûreté du Québec is responsible for surveillance and security within the territory of the Township of Gore.
The mission of the Sûreté du Québec relates to the security and well-being of all citizens, i.e.:
