Another Sirens and Lights Lesson

Thanks to a recent fire, it’s time to revisit a firefighter’s classic lesson to the motoring public:

“Sirens and Lights, Move to the Right.”

I received an e-mail from my collegue Derek Sheppard, who works out of the Kitsap Sun’s Poulsbo office as North Kitsap reporter.

He said he’d spoken recently to Connie Lord, Poulsbo City Councilwoman, who said she’d gotten stuck in traffic on southbound Highway 3 as a massive brush fire burned the west side of the highway.

There was a water tender truck, Lord said, that just couldn’t get through traffic because motorists didn’t know what to do.

Thus, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

“Sirens and Lights, Move to the Right.”

Anyone else have any valuable lessons for driving when an emergency vehicle approaches?
