Why do the fire apparatus park in the fire lane when they are at the grocery store?
While the firefighters are at the store they still must respond on any incoming 911 call as quickly as possible. If they are called out on an emergency, parking in the fire lane will allow for a quick exit and timely response to the emergency.
