Tanker Shuttle Accreditation

The City of Thorold Fire and Emergency Services is tanker shuttle accredited. 

To be recognized for Accredited Superior Tanker Shuttle Service, a fire department must be able to demonstrate the ability to shuttle water via tanker trucks to fight fires that are located in rural areas, far from municipal hydrants. Specifically, to become accredited, the fire department must deliver a minimum flow rate of 950 litres/minute within the first five minutes of arriving to the test site, and be able to maintain this water flow for two hours.

This accreditation will also allow residents in Station two and Station four rural areas to qualify for a reduced insurance premium, by providing proof that their property is served by their accredited fire station.
