You need to ask your local fire department planning and engineering section what exactly they want. They are probably talking about something like this:

II. Fire Access:

All buildings shall have fire engine access within 150’ of any portion of the building. Roads shall be all weather and capable of supporting a 40,000 lb apparatus and provide an inside turn radius of 39’. Fire access roads greater than 150 ft shall be provided with a turnaround using the Gilroy Fire Department template. Fire access shall not have a slope greater than 15 %, nor be less than 20 ft in width. Fire access to be reviewed and approved by Fire Prevention.

We have found a property which is 50x285. We are planning on building condos or town homes.The town requires an auto raduis for the fire and emergency services to enter and exit. We are not very familair with this term. Would you happen to know where I can access the information or would you know the number based on measurements?

Thank you for help!!!
