Water Tanker Shuttle Accreditation

Every year, the Township of Alfred and Plantagenet conducted a water transportation drill. As a result, the Fire Department is certified to deliver Superior Tanker Shuttle Service.

This accreditation offers residents of rural areas who do not have a fire hydrant nearby, a reduction on their residential insurance premium. Contact your broker to apply this deduction and to learn more.

A digital copy of the official certificates are available upon request.
