Fire lane entrance looks like a pedestrian sidewalk to most of the public.
Introducing curves in the sidewalk gives the impression of meandering through a garden. Introducing an elevated planter next to the fire lane adds interest.
Stormwater catch basin also would collect excess water from fighting fires. Having porous paving helps absorb those Florida flash rains. Note the placement of the hydrant. There is another one at the front end of the emergency access.
