Don’t park in front of hydrants. For real.
I have totally watched my captain smash 2 car windows with a halligan (firefighter tool-think of it like the medievalist crowbar you’ve ever seen) to run 3 inch hose through to the hydrant. There was a fire. Someone’s possessions were going up in flames, and the engine was about to exhaust its onboard tank. The pathetic thing was that there was room next to the hydrant, but this guy’s driveway was full, and the hydrant was next to the driveway. Instead of walking an extra 20 feet, he wanted his Prelude next to the driveway, right in front of the hydrant. The county DID NOT pay for his windows, or water damage to his interior.
