Bruno de Repentigny, Rougemont F.D.
On May 10th 2013, Bruno de Repentigny - Chief of the Rougemont Fire Department - died following a very aggressive cancer. As a member of the Rougemont F.D., I have served under his command for more than two years. But I have known him pretty much my whole life, as I was watching him with curiosity lead his men during a few fires. A passionate chief and an exceptional man has left us. Rest in peace, Chief.

Kennel fire in Rougemont
The Rougemont Fire Department was called for a working fire in a building on Rang des Sept near the mountain. First firefighters on site discover a fully involved kennel. Help requests to neighboring departments follow quickly. [SPECIAL COLLABORATION: Jeanne Dorion Grenier for the photos, since I was responding myself with the department :)]
