Green Light Awareness!
The Fort William First Nation First Response Team would like to notify community members and visitors that the First Response Team will be using flashing green lights when responding to emergency calls within the community.
If you see a vehicle approaching behind you with flashing green lights in the community, follow these steps!
- If you are at a stop sign, allow the vehicle with flashing green lights to continue first when safe to do so;
- If the vehicle is approaching from behind, yield the right of way and pull over to the side of the road when safe to do so to allow the vehicle with flashing green lights to pass safely. Using your turn signal to show when you are pulling to the side of the road is an indicator for First Responders to safely pass;
- If you are unable to yield the right of way due to traffic, continue to drive as usual until it is safe to yield the right of way.
This is a courtesy and is greatly appreciated by the First Response Team! Help save lives and yield to flashing green lights!
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact, Stephen Ree, who’s contact information can be found on the Team Contacts page.
