CNU Report on Emergency Response & Street Design, 2009

Tags for this publication:

CNU, fire marshals, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are working together to create connected networks of traditional streets that work equally well for pedestrians, traffic, and emergency response access. Learn how these streets save lives, improve emergency response times, and reduce vehicle miles traveled with this report, which summarizes Peter Swift’s study identifying street width as a determining factor in the frequency of collisions, the Local Government Commission’s case studies of developments in Hercules, Calif, Memphis, Tenn., and Seattle, Wash. (under a previous EPA grant to study this topic), the City of Charlotte, N.C.’s 2008 connectivity study, and myriad others cataloged by the Initiative team.
