No, it is illegal to drive over any deployed fire hoses, whether they are full of water or not. The weight of a vehicle can cause fire hoses to burst, which can endanger the lives of our firefighters as well as bystanders. It can also impede our efforts to extinguish the fire. Vehicles are frequently cited by Watertown Police for driving over fire hoses.
Call Watertown Municipal Utilities at 882-6233. WFR has no involvement in the maintenance or repair of fire hydrants.
