10-40-500 Fireboats.
   Whenever, upon any alarm of fire, any fireboat shall approach a bridge and sound the proper signal for such bridge to open, the bridge tender shall, if such bridge is closed, open the same as soon as practicable; or, if open, shall keep such bridge open until such fireboat shall have had opportunity to pass through the draw of said bridge notwithstanding that the street traffic may thereby be delayed.
(Prior code § 38-52)
