Bonjour, Marc:

I think the more common translation to English for <i>Directeur-Adjoint</i> would be ‘Associate Director’.

I loved ‘Conflagaration Protection Service’ smilies-01 , but I think a more accurate translation would be ‘Fire Protection Service’ or just ‘Fire Service’.

(Whatever happened to the wonderful <i>Corps des Pompiers</i>?)

Hey Richard,

I purposefully translated the name literaly to show the difference. While it is, of course, a "fire department", no such service are called "departement du/des feu(x)" instead using the more specific "incendies".

Regarding the "pompier", this is still the name used for a fireman no matter the name of its department.

Thanks for the information, do you have any other Canadian Fire or Rescue agencies? Also who handles ambulance and rescue work in Canada, private companies, separate rescue departments or are they a branch of the fire department like in most US departments?

Most Fire departments in Quebec seem to use the same type of insignias as Quebec City.

As for the ambos, in quebec you will find various corporations who answer to the provincial Ministry for Health and Social Services. Some are public, others private.

One of the better known is `Urgences-Santé` (a public one) which operate in Montreal and Laval which can be recognised by their dark red coats and dayglo yellow ambulance. I have no idea if they have rank insignias but I doubt it.
