Image taken on the 5700 block of Terrace Drive near West Linn High School. During a football game at the nearby high school, vehicles are parked on the north and south sides on what is classified as a 'Local' street and reduce overall width of the route to less than half, from 28 feet to just under 12 feet. Most streets within the Residential Parking District are narrow: Suitable for two-way traffic, but not designed for parking on one or both sides on the roadway. "Street width affects the ability of emergency vehicles to quickly reach a fire or medical emergency. Emergency service providers and residents alike have an expectation that neighborhood streets provide adequate space for emergency vehicles to promptly reach their destination and for firefighters to efficiently set up and use their equipment. "The size of fire apparatus is driven, in part, by federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) requirements and local service needs. The regulations require that fire trucks carry considerable equipment and that firefighters ride completely enclosed in the vehicle. In addition, to save money, fire departments buy multi-purpose vehicles that can respond to an emergency like a heat attack or a traffic accident, as well as a fire. "These vehicles typically provide the first response to an emergency.To accommodate the need to move the vehicles and access equipment on them quickly, the Uniform Fire Code calls for a 20-foot wide clear passage."
