‘Seconds count in saving lives’

Ballyclare Fire Station.

Inconsiderate motorists are putting people’s lives at risk by blocking the entrance to Ballyclare Fire Station.

That’s the warning from the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service, which this week appealed to drivers to refrain from parking in front of the station.

A Fire Service spokesperson said that some members of the public have been leaving their vehicles on the fire station forecourt while they visit businesses on the Ballynure Road. And in some instances drivers have even parked across the bay doors, potentially delaying fire appliances leaving the station and posing a risk to public safety.
