Five Little-Known Facts about Firefighting in Ottawa
Did you know that the Ottawa Fire Services covers an area larger than the cities of Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton and Montreal put together?Firefighters are not part of the average citizen´s everyday life, and not many people are familiar with a firefighter´s everyday life at work. They do much more than put out fires— they do a lot of prevention work in the community. They establish deep bonds with each other, and become more like brothers than coworkers.

SEAN TRACEY, chef adjoint du Service des Incendies d'Ottawa, se présente en uniforme, tenant sa casquette sous le bras. M. TRACEY propose 5 aspects méconnus du métier de pompier à Ottawa.
5 Le plus grand territoire
Personne pense que c'est vrai,
mais le Service des incendies,
nous pensons que c'est le plus
grand au Canada et probablement
en Amérique du Nord. Vous pouvez
mettre les villes de Vancouver,
Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto et
Montréal dans notre superficie
et la ville d'Ottawa est
plus grande que ça.
Le travail comme pompier avec
la ville d'Ottawa ou n'importe
quelle ville est
vraiment très unique.
Nous pensons que les pompiers
sont comme une grande famille
parce qu'ils travaillent
ensemble, ils mangent ensemble.
Ils répondent aux incidents
dans la communauté ensemble
pour 24 heures par jour. Même
après le travail, nous donnons
de l'assistance à nos membres,
s'ils ont besoin d'aide,
3 Spécialistes reconnus
Nous sommes un service qui est
très fier de nos membres et
les choses, le travail que nous
faisons. Toujours, nos pompiers
doivent faire de l'entraînement
dans de nouvelles habiletés.
Dans les compétitions,
notre équipe d'extrication
avec les Jaws of Life était
première dans le monde.
Nous avons aussi des équipes
spéciales comme une équipe
de sauvetage nautique. Même
une équipe pour le response
en matériau dangereux.
2 Engagement communautaire
Beaucoup de personnes pensent
que le Service des incendies
est seulement des pompiers,
mais nous avons aussi une équipe
de prévention des incendies.
Il fait des inspections dans
les édifices publics, les
domiciles. Nous faisons beaucoup
de choses dans la communauté.
Nous pensons que le Service
des incendies, c'est pas comme
un métier, mais plus comme
une vocation. Parce que
nous demandons d'avoir
les personnes qui mettent
leurs besoins après
les besoins des citoyens
dans nos communautés.
Nous cherchons toujours des
personnes qui peuvent faire ça
et ce mois, le mois de mai,
nous avons commencé le processus
d'application pour les prochains
pompiers. C'est vraiment
bien essentiel de trouver
ces personnes qui peuvent
faire ce travail.
