Are We Getting Through?

In an emergency, every second that the emergency services are delayed could have serious, life threatening consequences. We are asking drivers to think when they are parking and ask themselves the question: ‘Are we getting through?’

Our smallest appliance needs a minimum of 3m, or the width of two cars, to pass safely. If you called for help, you would want to know we’re getting through.

Poor or inconsiderate parking, even if only for a few minutes, can delay us during an emergency call and, in the case of a rapidly developing fire, every second counts.

Roads near schools are often difficult to pass through safely, especially when cars are dropping off or picking up children. You may not be parking illegally, but is there a smarter option? Would a space a few metres away be a better place to stop?

Poor or inconsiderate parking is not limited to roads near schools and often affects high streets and the roads by fire stations.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it can be like, this video shows some of the issues we face every day.

Did you know that, when called, our on-call firefighters have to be at their station within five minutes? Any delay in arriving has a negative effect on our operational effectiveness. Don’t let your car be the one that slows us in an emergency.

We have put together some top tips for you to remember when parking:
