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.
