[ARCHIVED] LMFD PSA: Be a good neighbor and ensure emergency vehicles have access through your neighborhood

PSA Parking graphic with LMFD seal_102319

The La Marque Fire Department would like to remind you to ensure emergency vehicles have unimpeded access through your neighborhoods.

When an emergency is happening, seconds count! The La Marque Fire Department would like to remind you to ensure emergency vehicles have unimpeded access through your neighborhoods. When vehicles park on the road, it creates a situation wherein emergency vehicles must reduce speed to ensure they can maneuver by them. When vehicles are parked across from each other, it can reduce the access to a point where the emergency vehicles cannot go between them and delay first responders from arriving at the emergency.

This impeded traffic flow is against the law and can have a negative impact on someone’s health and/ or additional damage to property (due to the response delay).

Please be a good neighbor and park in designated driveways when available and NEVER park across from another vehicle and/ or impede the flow of travel. Thank you for ensuring our emergency vehicles have this access and can arrive as safely as possible.


Cuando ocurre una emergencia, ¡cada segundo cuenta! El Departamento de Bomberos de La Marque desea recordarle que se asegure de que los vehículos de emergencia tengan acceso sin obstáculos a través de los vecindarios. Cuando los vehículos se estacionan en la carretera, se crea una situación en la que los vehículos de emergencia deben reducir la velocidad para garantizar que puedan maniobrar por ellos. Cuando los vehículos están estacionados uno frente al otro, puede reducir el acceso a un punto donde los vehículos de emergencia no pueden pasar entre ellos y retrasar la llegada de los primeros socorristas.

Este flujo de tráfico impedido es contra la ley y puede tener un impacto negativo en la salud de alguien y / o daños adicionales a la propiedad (debido al retraso de respuesta).

Sea un buen vecino y estacione en las entradas designadas cuando esté disponible y NUNCA se estacione frente a otro vehículo y / o impida el flujo del viaje. Gracias por garantizar que nuestros vehículos de emergencia tengan este acceso y puedan llegar lo más seguros posible.
