What do I do when I see an emergency vehicle?
o React quickly and calmly and scan in all directions before pulling over. Always use a turn signal and don’t slam on the brakes or pull over suddenly.
o Carefully pull your vehicle to the right side of the road and stop until the emergency vehicle passes.
o If at an intersection, or stopped in traffic, drivers should remain stopped and wait until the emergency vehicles have passed.
o Once the emergency vehicle has passed remain 500 feet or more behind the vehicle.
o Drivers on the opposite side of the road of the emergency vehicle should pull over as well, unless there is a raised divider in the street.
