IMPORTANT Emergency Vehicle Accessibility Information
Remember that Private Access Roads that lead to and from your Residence should be kept clear and free of snow in the winter , as well as obstructions from branches and fallen trees in the summer. This will determine the type and size of Emergency Vehicles that can access your property.
Accessability for the Kearney Fire and Emergency Services and their vehicles during any emergency is important and inaccessible roads will determine the level of service you recieve.
It is the responsibility of the home or cottage owner to ensure access on privately maintained roads for Emergency Vehicles.
Access should be maintained to a minimum of 6 metres ( 20 feet ) wide by 4 metres ( 13 feet ) high. Turn around areas at the end of laneways should also be constructed with a diameter of 18 metres ( 66 feet ). Grades should be kept to a maximum 12 degrees. Also keep in mind that today’s Emergency Vehicles can be quite heavy and require that road beds , bridges ,etc be designed to support these loads.
Most of all, REMEMBER, if we can’t get there – we can’t help you.
