The City’s Hydrant Hero program has now begun this winter season! Last year, many of Ottawa’s hydrant heroes shared a photo of their cleared hydrant to receive their official Hydrant Hero certificate. Henry and Dylan are just two of last year’s recipients.

After receiving a letter from Chief Ayotte and our colleagues at Ottawa Fire Services requesting their assistance, Aila stepped up and cleared her local hydrant.
