City of Ottawa Fire Services - Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation

Property owners in communities with accredited Superior Tanker Shuttle Service are eligible for improved property insurance rates similar to those in communities with municipal-type water supply systems.  An “Accredited Superior Tanker Shuttle Service” is a recognized equivalency to hydrant protection.

Prior to amalgamation, the Insurance Advisory Organization certified all fire services of Cumberland, Osgoode, Nepean, Rideau, Goulbourn, Kanata and West Carleton with the Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation.

Post amalgamation, the Insurance Advisory Organization, determined that all areas of the New City of Ottawa would be considered as meeting the Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation.

The majority of insurance companies recognize the accreditation in calculating insurance premiums.  However, it is in the best interest of property owners to ensure their insurance agent is recognizing the accreditation and providing a competitive rate.

The Ottawa Fire Service continues to maintain a high standard of organization, and training to deliver  the Superior Tanker Shuttle Service regularly. The continued installations and maintenance of water fill sites in non-hydrant areas across the City of Ottawa help to preserve the Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation within the City.

Should your insurance agent require further information to recognize the accreditation and provide you with a competitive rate, please contact Diane Logan at 613-580-2424 ext 32260, diane.logan@ottawa.ca.
