Emergency Vehicles and You

When an emergency vehicle has its lights and siren on, it is responding to an emergency. It is YOUR responsibility to:

  • Pull to the right side of the road and STOP until the emergency vehicle has passed.
  • Give all emergency vehicles the right-of-way.
  • Keep back at least 500 feet from an emergency vehicle when it is responding with lights and sirens.
  • Do not drive over fire hoses.
  • Drive carefully around an emergency scene.
