Lights and Sirens

It is a surprising experience to hear bellowing sirens and visualize a dramatic display of emergency lights . This is particularly true when driving on the road. It is important that we all learn the “rules of the road” and apply it to our personal driving habits.

What should drivers do:

  • Remain calm and prepare to move to the right
  • After pulling to the right most portion of the road, stop
  • Remain aware of what other drivers are doing
  • When stopped at an intersection, remain where you are unless otherwise instructed by the emergency vehicle

What drivers should NOT do:

  • Do not panic
  • Do not stop in the middle of the road or lane
  • Do not drive through a red light at an intersection
  • Do not closely follow an emergency vehicle
  • Do not make a sudden stop
