Superior Tanker Shuttle Service

Through the dedication and training of our volunteers the MVFD has successfully attained Superior Tanker Shuttle Service Accreditation. Many properties in the service area now qualify for “equivalent to fire hydrant protection” on their insurance policies. The Fire Underwriter Survey has updated the Canadian Fire Insurance Grading Index to show the Dwelling Protection Grade 3B(S) for properties that qualify within the service area.
