A fire lane is a marked lane in a parking lot that is near a structure. Parking is prohibited in fire lanes to endure the access of safety equipment to the structure in the event of an emergency. Fire lanes are defined as passageways or access roads that allow fire apparatuses to pass through. They are not intended for normal vehicle traffic. There are certain requirements that must be met when designing a fire lane, because fire trucks and other apparatuses are so large, there must be certain accommodations made for them. Fire lanes also provide clear space for egress from a burning building and should therefore be wider for larger occupancy buildings. There is no parking allowed in fire lanes. You must also have the proper credentials to park in a handicap spot. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Fire Marshal, Robert Weer at London Grove Township, 610-345-0100.
