Clearing Snow Around Fire Hydrants

If you have a fire hydrant near your home, or on your private property, you are responsible to clear snow and ice from the hydrant so there is a 1.5 meters (5 feet) clearing around the hydrant. This ensures that in an emergency, Beaumont Fire Services can access the hydrant as fast as possible. Please refer to our Water and Sewer Bylaw 689-08 paragraphs 5.15 and 5.17.
