Lawlessness Brings Destruction

These photos show how important it is to maintain clearances in fire lane areas in apartment complexes. The typical urban fire apparatus (even rural ones) dwarfs any regular car or even a 4X4 pick up or SUV and firefighters need all the room they can get to stage their rigs and set them up for operation. Most pre-connected hand lines are at least 150' and can take up a lot of room outside a burning structure. Aerial ladder trucks can't set up if there's not enough room for their outriggers to deploy to stabilize the rig so the ladder can be used for window rescue, directing an elevated water stream, or ventilation of the structure to prevent a backdraft explosion and facilitate rescue and safer entry for firefighters. If you see anyone parking in fire lanes, notify management. If they are unresponsive, contact your local FD or fire district fire marshal or code enforcement office. It IS a matter of life or death.
