Fire Hydrants

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Fire hydrants are required to be located, identified and accessed for immediate use by fire fighters in an emergency. Searching for hydrants or struggling to access the connections during an emergency wastes valuable time. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Keep a 1m clearance on all sides of a fire hydrant.
  • Obstructions such as hedges, shrubs, trees, fences and the accumulation of materials are not permitted to be within 1m of a fire hydrant. 
  • Fire hydrants should be kept clear of snow.
  • Fire hydrants should be visible from the street when approaching from either direction.
