As the community continues to grow, Georgina Fire and Rescue Services determined, as part of the Fire Master Plan, to expand the firefighting capabilities for Udora and the surrounding community. In the 2020 budget, Council approved the funds to support this project.
As part of the improvements at the Udora Community Hall, a new 135,000-litre underground fire tank has been installed. This project was carried out by Town staff in partnership with a local contractor to supply and install this much-needed tank.
