Fire hydrants help keep our community safe by providing Fire and Emergency Services personnel with quick access to water.

Never place any material in front of a hydrant including trees, shrubs, plants, fences, berms or other obstructions. 

Parking a vehicle of any kind within three metres of a municipal fire hydrant is prohibited.
