Contest: Adopt a Fire Hydrant!

It's back again this year! After a snowfall, clear a hydrant in your neighborhood for a chance to win prizes!

After a snowfall, fire hydrants are often covered with snow. As we know, every second counts during a fire. At times, the 1,500 fire hydrants in the area may be inaccessible for a few hours or days while Town employees regain control of the road system.

Thanks to the "Adopt a fire hydrant" contest, people can contribute to the safety of their neighbourhood by clearing the snow from a hydrant located near their home after a snowfall. This can make a big difference in the speed of response by firefighters in the event of a fire.

How to participate

  • After a snowfall, take your shovel and clear a fire hydrant in your neighbourhood.
  • The recommended clearance is 1.5 m around the hydrant.
  • When you're done, take a picture of yourself with the cleared hydrant.
  • Send your photo to 
  • Repeat the same steps after each storm.
  • The winners will be announced on the Pincourt Facebook page.

Participation prizes 

  • Suprises

The winners will be determined by a random draw among all participants each snowfall.
