					You’ve seen the
flashing lights,

you’ve heard the
sirens...
             deciding what to do when an emergency vehicle is
             approaching from any direction can be a dilemma.

  Here are some tips that will help you stay calm and safe and help our
  emergency vehicles get to their destination without delay:

  • Look and listen
     Check your mirrors regularly and make sure your music is not too loud.

  • Consider the route and size of the vehicle
     You may need to move over even if the emergency vehicle is travelling in
     the opposite direction.

  • Signal your intentions using your indicators
     This will help the emergency vehicle and other road users know what
     action you are taking.

  • Pull in or move over safely
     You may not need to stop completely.

  • Don’t stop opposite any obstructions
     This will make the road narrower.

  • Avoid mounting kerbs/pavements where possible
     Be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists.

  • Signal when you are pulling away
     Motorists behind you may still be moving, be careful when rejoining the road.

  • Stay alert
     More emergency vehicles may be on the way.
