The Fort William First Nation First Response Team is reminding everyone to yield the right of way to vehicles with flashing green lights. First Responders use flashing green lights in their personal vehicles to notify other drivers that they are responding to an emergency call. Yielding to vehicles with flashing green lights allows first responders to arrive to a scene of an emergency more rapidly.
Providing the courtesy of pulling to the side of the road to allow a first responder with a flashing green light pass, not only allows them to arrive to the scene of an emergency more rapidly but more importantly, allows them to start life saving interventions on someone in medical distress.
We would like to thank all motorists for their continued support in allowing our first responders to arrive to a emergency call safely!
