Notice: Snow Clearing Requirements

The BC Fire Code and the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) Bylaw No. 1956, 2010 require clear access to fire hydrants and fire department connections for sprinkler and standpipe systems.

Attention: All strata, property management companies, and property owners

For your safety, Fire Department access to fire hydrants must be maintained at all times.

Please ensure that:

  • All hydrants and fire department connections on your property have clear access and are free of snow within a one-metre radius.
  • Road or lane access to your property or complex is cleared and salted or sanded.

Failure to provide access may result in fines or the removal of the obstruction at the owner or occupant’s expense.
