In May 2014 the North Grenville Fire Service was once again successful in completing the Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation.
North Grenville Station 1 at 259 County Road 44, Kemptville and Station 2 at 94 Maplewood Avenue in Oxford Mills received accreditation for detached residential properties within 8 kilometers by road of either station. The accreditation is awarded to departments that demonstrate the ability to deliver a minimum of 200 gallons of water for a minimum of 2 hours and by doing so are considered as "hydrant equivalent" for insurance purposes.
This accreditation gives a Commercial class of 7 within 5 kilometers of the fire station.
Most insurance companies recognize the accreditation in calculating insurance premiums. However, it is in the best interest of the property owner to ensure their insurance agent is recognizing the accreditation and providing a competitive rate.
