Bethlehem Firefighter Blocks Fire Hydrant

About a month ago, in "Hero Next Door" Parks Next to Fire Hydrants, I told you about an Ass't Fire Chief at Nazareth's Vigilance Hose who routinely parks a Nazareth School District van next to a fire hydrant at borough hall. "I'm the fire chief," he told a Nazareth cop.

I guess that makes it OK.

Unfortunately, it's happening in Bethlehem, too. On the left, you can see a picture of a fire department car parked right next to a fire hydrant right outside of City Hall.

He must be a fire chief, too.

Parking space at City Hall is insufficient for all the municipal vehicles, so a section is marked off for municipal vehicles only.

I suppose that's cheaper than another parking garage, but that's no excuse for parking next to a fire hydrant.

This "Do as I say, not as I do" attitude sends a terrible message to the public.

He is probably too obese to walk any further than that.

What if the fire department needed that hydrant?

I think what they are saying is , "we really don't need that much space around the hydrant"

No doubt Donchez will convene a blue ribbon panel and committee to study the problem and make a recommendation on how to handle it. That my friends is leadership!

Let me just say.. If there is a fire and that hydrant is needed, I'm pretty sure he's gonna know about it. Derrr
Now, I'm not condoning the fact that he is in an illegal parking spot, because it's not right. However, I'm prettyyyy positive that when the fire department is dispatched for a fire and given hydrant locations on the dispatch, the person driving that car HAS a radio and will most definitely know there is a fire going on.
