Flashing Lights in the Rear View, Now What?

Here are some more tips for what to do when sharing the road with a fire truck or ambulance

· Pull over to the edge of the roadway and stop.

· Stay until the emergency vehicle has passed. But keep watch: There may be other emergency vehicles.

· Keep a foot on the brake so emergency vehicle drivers know you have stopped.

· Stay at least 500 feet behind any moving emergency vehicle  displaying flashing warning lights and sounding a siren.

· Never race after an emergency vehicle to get through a traffic  light.

· Never pass a moving emergency vehicle with flashing lights unless directed to do so by law enforcement or emergency  personnel.
