The Indianapolis fire department shared some photos on social media today. Apparently the engine hooked to the hydrant and fire suppression was underway. Then late some dude feels the need to park and pushes the supply hose out of the way with this SUV.
Seriously think about this. People make mistakes and park by a fire plug because sometime they truly did not see it. But how do you miss a big fat yellow hose?!?
Knowing some of the guys I do, if this had happened here… they would have shut down the hydrant just long enough to reconnect the hose by passing it through some windows.
No word on if the PD came and towed the vehicle or not.
