Fire Lanes

The City of Springfield has an ordinance against the blocking of a Fire Apparatus Access Road or Fire Lane.

Section 503.4 IFC
Fire apparatus access roads shall not be obstructed in any manner, including the parking of vehicles. The minimum widths and clearances established in Section 503.2.1 shall be maintained at all times.

Fire Access Roads or Fire Lanes must be unobstructed so the fire department may gain access to a building or structure for rescue, emergency, evacuation, and firefighting operations.
