125. A person mobilised pursuant to measures established under this Act or whose intervention is required or expressly accepted under this Act is, for the purposes of third-party liability, deemed to be an agent or servant of the authority under whose command the person is placed, for the duration of the person’s intervention. However, a person mobilised pursuant to section 83 is deemed to be an agent or servant of the delinquent civil protection authority and a person mobilised outside Québec for the implementation of cooperative measures referred to in section 68 is deemed to be an agent or servant of the Government.
The same presumption applies, with the necessary modifications, to training periods, measure assessment exercises and preparatory exercises.
The presumption does not apply, however, to agents or servants of the State or of legal persons established in the public interest who do not cease to act in the exercise of their functions for the sole reason that they are placed temporarily under the command of another authority.
