Fire protection for Hanwell is provided by the Upper Kingsclear Fire Department. Fire Station 2 was built in 2017/2018 to help better serve the community of Hanwell, with a Grand Opening for the new Station 2 which was held on March 24, 2018, to celebrate its completion. Fire Station 1 is located in Upper Kingsclear. We invite you to check out the Upper Kingsclear Fire Department web site.
The Harvey Fire Dept. is the primary responder for the south end of the municipality.
The new Station 2 is a great asset to help protect our community. The greatest concern was the need for a good reliable water supply for fire suppression. In fall of 2015 Hanwell Council ordered the installation of three dry hydrants, which, when fully functional, will be tested for the provision of a superior water shuttle service.
A fire protection survey was contracted to Fire Underwriters Survey in the summer of 2015, and the report and its recommendations were received by Council in December 2015.
The completed Fire Study Report can be viewed here.
At the June 26, 2017 Special Meeting of Council the Fire Station contract was awarded to the lowest bidder, King Construction Ltd for the tendered price of $1,025,000.00
