Rappahannock Fire and Rescue has a reminder

Rappahannock Fire and Rescue would like to ask, if you had a fire at your house, would a fire truck fit down your driveway?

If firefighters cannot reach your home safely, they will need to find
an alternative way that could take longer.

Remember that every second counts.

To help firefighters find your house quickly, please make sure your house number is visible, make sure your driveway is safe and visible.

Also make sure your driveway is at least 12 feet wide, and make sure there is room for rescue vehicles to turn around.
