How Far Should You Park from a Fire Hydrant?


    You should park at least 3 meters (9 fts) away from a fire hydrant to ensure firefighters have unobstructed access in case of emergency. Parking closer obstructs their ability to quickly connect hoses and access water, potentially endangering lives and property. Many jurisdictions enforce strict penalties, such as fines and towing, for violating this rule. So, it’s essential to be mindful of hydrant locations and abide by regulations to prioritize community safety.
