Make sure that fire hydrants are always visible and accessible. Hiding or painting a hydrant is not permitted. For everyone's safety during the winter months, please make sure that you keep the area surrounding the hydrant free of snow and ice.
If a fire hydrant is covered, we ask that you:
- Uncover the top of the hydrant so that it can be located easily in an emergency; or
- Call to let us know at 705-653-1900
With over 300 hydrants in Trent Hills, we value your help in keeping them clear of snow and ice and ensuring our community's safety.
We flush water from our fire hydrants semi-annually. During our flushing operations in April and October, you may have discoloured water. Please refrain from doing laundry or using hot water until your water clears. Our staff make every effort to keep to the set schedule. We appreciate your co-operation.
