Please Don’t Block Fire Hydrants!
A message from the Charleston Fire Department:
Please don’t block fire hydrants! Not only is it illegal, it can delay the fire departments ability to locate and utilize the hydrant and even endanger our firefighters.
- Don’t park in front of or within 15’ of the hydrant
- Try not to block the hydrant with trash cans, leaf bags, or debris
- Fences, shrubs, and other obstructions cannot be within 3’ of the hydrant
