On Sunday, May 19, 2019, Fort Dodge Fire Rescue was called to a structure fire on 1st Avenue North. While working to extinguish the fire, an individual was cited by the Fort Dodge Police Department for driving over the Firefighters' supply line.

Driving over supply lines can cause serious injuries to our Firefighters. In the past year, Firefighters around the country have suffered leg injuries, back injuries and major head trauma as a result of drivers ignoring barricades and Officers. Further, punctures to the hoses could cause significant loss of water pressure, putting Firefighters' lives at risk.

It's not worth it. If you see emergency crews, help them get home to their families safely. Steer clear or face fines of $195.00 for driving over hoses.

Or when it’s rainy & dark & you can’t see the damned things & the cops just sit by waiting for someone to drive over it without having it barricaded!

Some people just have no idea and no thought for another fellow person!

Good information

WHY DIDN'T THEY HAVE THE ROAD BLOCKED.

The fine should be morethen that!

I think the fine should be at LEAST double what it is now.

There is also liability for any damaged hoses or fire pumps. That could cost in the thousands.

People are just in to much of a hurry, no patience anymore. Had a suv cut us off in a construction area yesterday. People just don't care.

I'm sorry this happened!! I truly wish that people would just take a second to think. Common sense would dictate not to run over a fire hose when firefighters are fighting a fire!!

I never ceases to amaze me how ignorant people can really be

Sorry for stupid people.

Good and important reminders!

Stupid people!

That should be a minimum $1000 fine. Ignorant people

ATTENTION SNELL CRAWFORD PARK PATRONS!

During the Williams Drive construction project, access into Snell Crawford Park will be limited.

Monday - Friday, please park on the east side of Williams Drive and walk to the park through the north side along the trail.

Saturday & Sunday, you may be able to drive into the park ONLY from the north. Access will be a temporary rock road that will begin at the trail head and enter through the park.

Please use caution when entering and exiting the park. Be extra mindful of pedestrians if driving on the temporary road.

Check back at the end of May for June access instructions. Thank you for your patience during this time!

How long will this project take? My vote would be for the parking lot to just stay closed during construction, rather than tear up part of the park so people can park 150' closer.

When will this road be placed? I just tried to get to the park
