The mission of the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal (SIM) is to save lives, protect property and preserve the environment. The department has 65 stations strategically located across the agglomeration of Montréal and can count on the combined efforts of 2,300 firefighters, of which approximately 500 are on duty 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and 400 administrative employees.
Town of Mount Royal relies on Fire station 74 at 10 Roosevelt Avenue. Citizens of Mount Royal can also count on the support of any neighbouring station in case of need.
Mount Royal residents have access to a firefighter first responder service. These prehospital emergency services are offered in conjunction with Urgences-santé paramedics.

In October 2008, the department received a certification of compliance from the Ministry of Public Security for its fire safety cover plan which was officially approved by the agglomeration council in December of the same year. This is great news for the population because the measures proposed in the plan will allow the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal to offer an optimal level of fire protection above and beyond the requirements of the ministry.
