What should I do when a fire truck or ambulance approaches me while I am driving?
If any emergency vehicle approaches you with emergency lights and sirens on, pull to the right and come to a stop. Emergency vehicles are trying to get to a scene as quickly as possible while driving respectfully. Also, please slow down when you see emergency vehicles on the side of the road. Roads may be slippery and firefighters may be in the roadway helping others.
