Reminder to keep emergency exits usable

In light of the recent events related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Prescott Fire Department would like to remind everyone to ensure that they keep their emergency exits open and passable. Across the country businesses and multifamily apartment buildings are trying to limit access to one controlled point of entry. Some have locked emergency exits with a chain and lock. Please know this is a violation of code, and is dangerous to occupants in the event there is a need for evacuation. Blocking emergency exits also provides challenges to the Emergency Service organizations, delaying our timely response to those in need.
