Video teaches drivers to pull over for emergency vehicles

The aim of the video is to bring attention to the crucial seconds that can be saved if motorists pull over for emergency vehicles

Emergency officials say not enough drivers know what to do when a police car, fire truck or ambulance approaches from behind with its lights flashing and sirens blaring.

Edmonton Police, Edmonton Fire Rescue, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Motor Association have joined forces to create a video educating drivers on how to safely pull over to the right and come to a stop when an emergency vehicle approaches.

The point of the campaign is to save lives by allowing responders to get to an emergency more quickly.

Robert Gift Robert Gift Saturday, December 01, 2012 8:05:55 PM Worthless video. Engage TURN SIGNALS and safely move to the right. Oncoming emergencyehicles may be turning to their left in front of you. Stop before any intersections they are approaching. When other vehicles have stopped for their GREEN signal, before passsing them and entering the intersection, consider that they may have stopped for an approaching emergencyehicle.
Jelly Andrews Jelly Andrews Wednesday, December 05, 2012 8:22:31 PM It is really important to give way for the emergency vehicles because even a slight delay might cause further damage or even death to the patient. As motorists, we should always remember to stay calm and don’t panic because panic won’t help. Just pull over with caution. It is as simple as that. - http://www.911responselights.com/
