Emergency Vehicle Access

Emergency Vehicle Ease of Access

Recommendations for Emergency Vehicle Access

Consider the Fire Department and Ambulance Services when deciding on your driveway.  For these larger vehicles to have easy access, your driveway needs to be wide enough for them to get to you, 14 to 16 feet wide is recommended.  The entrance from the road should be large enough for these vehicles to enter and exit.  Also, the house numbers should be visible day and night.  Help them help you in an emergency.
