EFR reminds to keep safety in mind with spring cleanups

May 20, 2014

By Staff

Eastside Fire & Rescue officials remind homeowners to keep these safety tips in mind when it comes to spring cleanup efforts:

  • Visible home addressing — Don’t make it hard for emergency responders trying to locate your home. Properly posting your address sign on your driveway will help responders locate your home more quickly when minutes count during an emergency situation.
  • Fire hydrant visibility — EFR requires a 3-foot clear space be maintained around the circumference of the fire hydrant for easy access during emergencies.
  • Road access — Don’t let parked cars block driveways, and keep large trees, shrubs and other vegetation maintained to prevent hampering access. Road widths cannot be less than 20 feet and vertical clearance not less than 13 feet, 6 inches.
