How to carry out rescue if the lane is too narrow for the fire engine to enter?

If an accident occurs within the lane, the Fire Department will dispatch appropriate fire rescue vehicles for rescue. If the lane is wide enough for the fire rescue vehicle to pass through and operate, the vehicle will be driven right to the scene to carry out the rescue. If the sides of the road are parked with vehicles preventing the fire rescue vehicle from passing through and operating, then the vehicle will be parked at an appropriate nearby junction. The firefighters will then deploy water hoses to carry out the rescue work to safeguard the lives and property of the people in the region.
