Considerate parking

Our nightmare is not being able to get to the people who need us

Could a fire engine get past where you parked?

Every second counts when firefighters are responding to a 999 call. Time spent trying to squeeze between parked cars could put lives at risk.

  • Fire engines are larger than cars and need more room to turn corners so please avoid parking too close to junctions.
  • If you are parking opposite another vehicle, remember that a fire engine needs at least two car widths to fit through.
  • Park as close to the kerb as you can.

Think - it could be you, your family, friends, colleagues or neighbours that we can’t get to.
