  • What is Superior Tanker Shuttle Service Accreditation (STSS)?

    STSS Accreditation is a recognized equivalency to hydrant protection. To be accredited, fire departments must commit to maintaining a high standard of organization, and practice delivering the service regularly.

  • What if my property isn’t listed but I reside in Sturgeon Valley?

    If your property is not on the list, it likely does not qualify. The decision on coverage areas and insurance discounts are made by the Fire Underwriters Survey and your insurance company. However, residents bordering or near the eligible area are encouraged to seek quotes as there may be companies who may apply the benefits of STSS Accreditation due to your proximity.

  • How much of a reduction can I expect?

    This can be determined by contacting your property insurance agent to find out rate details.

  • Who do I call to ask about reduced fire insurance rates?

    Once you have determined your property is located within the eligible area, please contact your home insurance agent for more detailed information about the requirements for reduced fire insurance rates and if you qualify.

  • How can I find out if my home is eligible for reduced fire insurance rates?

    We are recommending that you contact your insurance agent directly and review your current Property Fire Insurance ratings. If your insurance company does not apply the STSS Accreditation, please explore options by obtaining quotes from other companies.

  • How did Sturgeon County receive this accreditation?

    Sturgeon County Protective Services applied for this accreditation through a rigorous testing process that measures the requirements for hydrant protection, as set out by the insurance industry. The Superior Tanker Shuttle Service enables emergency responders to extinguish a fire at a faster rate. Sturgeon County is the second municipality in Alberta to receive this accreditation.
