Fire Lanes & Hydrants
Fire Lanes must be kept clear at all times for access by emergency apparatus. Parking on campus roadways, driveways and walkways are prohibited. No parking signs and yellow markings mark many of these areas. Public Safety Officers enforce fire lane violations by issuing parking citations and or towing of vehicles. In addition, these areas will also be cleared from snow or any other material obstructions to allow reasonable access by emergency apparatus.
Fire Hydrants must be kept clear at all times for access by emergency apparatus. Blocking a hydrant by a vehicle will result in towing immediately to ensure access to the hydrant. Hydrants will also be a priority for snow removal. Landscaping shall not be permitted to interfere with access and operation to any hydrant. Public Safety will periodically check each fire hydrant to ensure access is feasible by emergency personnel. See Resources List for Fire Hydrant Locations
