I agree very much with this, but consider that Philip's comment here was
a response to Wayne's suggestion that "some [fire departments] might not
enter the project property if access/egress is poor."  This seems to be
an attempt to make it clear what the consequences are, not to excuse
poor planning.

(You may take this as a plea for being careful about including proper
