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
