F-iredepartment Reminds The Public Why Hydrants Are No-parking Zones

Firefighters are reminding people once again not to park besides f-ire hydrants through a public service announcement of sorts on social media. They’re doing so with a tactic others have shown: putting a f-ire hose through a vehicle’s windows.

Anaheim F-ire & Rescue officials said on Twitter, “Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a f-ire hydrant and a f-ire b-reaks out? Is a closer parking spot worth the b-roken windows and the citation and towing fees … ?”

Many people defended the approach. One Twitter user said “it’s a good representation of our society. My needs, my time, convenience are more valuable” than yours.

Some people cr-iticized the photo, saying, “That’s over doing it” and arguing the windows didn’t need to be b-roken.

The f-ire department responded, “We don’t intentionally da-mage people’s property unless absolutely necessary.”

A day after the department posted photos of the incident, it also issued a statement, saying, “We posted this incident to illustrate and educate, not to hum-iliate anyone.”

“In answer as to why b-reak the windows instead of going under, over, or around the car… it doesn’t work,” the department continued.

“The hose needs a straight line out of the hydrant.”
