A Brief Historyfire

In 1998 the Townships of Cambridge, Calédonia and South Plantagenet and the Village of St. Isidore were amalgamated to form The Nation Municipality. As a result of this amalgamation the new municipality had five distinct fire departments: St. Isidore, St. Bernardin, Fournier, Limoges and St. Albert, each with their own Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief and their organisations.
In the fall of 1998 the municipality hired Ghislain Pigeon as Fire Coordinator on a part time basis.
On December 1st, 2004, the five Fire Departments were amalgamated into one to be known as The Nation Fire Department with Ghislain Pigeon named as Fire Chief.
