Alarm System

In an effort to prevent fires numerous residences and businesses have installed fire alarm systems. It is important to have your system in good working order as you could be invoiced for any false alarms.

Burning Permits

Should you wish to light a fire on your property between April 15th and November 15th you must obtain a burning permit from the Town Hall.

There are no fees associated with this permit. In the event that any members of the fire brigade are called to your property and it is discovered that you have not obtained a burning permit, the municipality could invoice you for a false alarm.

The municipality’s territory is protected by the Sûreté du Québec.

The police are authorized to administer several municipal and regional by-laws. Below is a list of regulations they are authorized to oversee.

Your municipality has had the foresight to develop a Civil Security and Protection Plan that contains specific measures to be taken in the event of an emergency or disaster. This plan allows for essential services to be maintained as long as possible. These include:

  • Personal security of individual citizens
  • Protection of personal property
  • Emergency housing
  • Food and water
  • Hygiene
  • Public health

In addition to these intervention and reestablishment measures, the municipality has enacted general measures to prevent disasters or to minimize their consequence. They also regularly review measures to better prepare themselves in the event of an emergency such as training exercises and drills as well as training for the municipality’s personnel.

For more information, please consult the Ministry of Public Security’s website –

Following the Quebec Government’s adoption of the “Act to promote the protection of persons by establishing a framework with regard to dogs” March 3, 2020, the Municipality of Ormstown adopted a new by-law for managing animals.
