The Fire and Emergency Services Department is responsible for emergency response and fire prevention activities within the Township.
TANKER SHUTTLE ACCREDITATION
On Saturday, December 3, 2016, the Guelph Eramosa Fire Department successfully conducted its Tanker Shuttle Accreditation Test. In a rural firefighting situation, fire hydrants are not available and a water supply must be provided by transporting water in tanker trucks. Typically several tanker trucks are called in from neighbouring municipalities to ensure sufficient supply. In the accompanying video, you will see the pumper truck spraying water, with two tanker trucks dumping water into the portable tanks, from which the pumper drafts.
With support from our neighbouring departments, we were able to sustain high-flow water discharge, with uninterrupted tanker supply, resulting in successful accreditation. The Guelph Eramosa Fire Department would like to thank Puslinch, Guelph, Erin, and Centre Wellington Fire Departments for supplying tanker trucks and participating in the test.
Here is a copy of the Tanker Shuttle Certificate.
