Fire Route Safety

Please do not park in designated Fire Routes.

Any designated Fire Route needs to be clear of vehicles and ready for use by emergency vehicles.

In an emergency (fire, medical, lock down etc.) time is of the essence and emergency vehicles need access.

Fire Routes are signed “No Parking”. What does that mean?

  1. This means that you cannot stop your vehicle and get out of the vehicle even for a short period of time.
  2. You must obey the signs at all times regardless of the time of day or night.

In 2017, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville will adopt a zero tolerance approach to vehicles parked in designated Fire Routes. By-law Officers, Parking Officers, and Fire Prevention Officers will be issuing tickets when infractions are witnessed, to ensure the safety of all those using our schools and other buildings within the Municipality.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Whitchurch-Stouffville Fire & Emergency Services at 905-640-9595 or the By-Law Department at 905-640-1900 ext. 2258.
