Keep Fire Lanes Open for First Responders
KEEP FIRE LANES OPEN FOR FIRST RESPONDER ACCESS
Parking in a fire lane is prohibited at ALL times. Officers will be strictly enforcing this violation. Violations may result in a parking citation. Parking, even temporarily, to load/unload a vehicle is not prohibited.
Fire lanes provide important access to buildings for First Responders to gain immediate access to buildings. Incidents that require a response cannot be predicted and fire lanes play an important lifesaving role.
Conway Police Chief Long says, "Fire lanes serve an important safety factor for customers as well. Vehicles blocking access points in a fire lane to a business reduces visibility of pedestrian crossing and oncoming traffic. #ConwayPD and #CFD regularly respond to incidents at businesses with fire lanes. Our departments often cannot gain immediate access due to vehicles blocking the fire lane and it causes delays in our response."
