52.1. In order to respond to emergency calls in its territory, every local municipality, unless it is a northern village, must ensure the provision of services by a 9-1-1 emergency centre that has obtained a certificate of compliance in accordance with this division.
A 9-1-1 emergency centre receives calls requiring one or more emergency interventions, determines the nature of each emergency and transmits the call and the caller’s contact information to the appropriate secondary emergency call centre.
A secondary emergency call centre is the dispatch centre for a fire safety service or a police force, or a health communication centre within the meaning of the Act respecting pre-hospital emergency services (chapter S-6.2).
