Move Aside for Emergency Vehicles
Every year in the United States there are nearly 16,000 accidents involving fire rescue vehicles responding to emergencies. Not only do these accidents cause many severe and sometimes even fatal injuries to both firefighters and civilians, they also result in significant delays putting rescuers at the original emergency scene.
While many car emergencies cannot be predicted or anticipated, you can help minimize the potential for problems by making sure that you adhere to a regular maintenance schedule for your car and never delay attending to a known or suspected problem.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Mon Jun 9, 2014 11:43:24 AM
