We know that emergencies can happen when we least expect them, and every second counts in those critical moments. That's why we're reaching out to our amazing community to kindly remind you of a crucial action you can take to help us respond swiftly and safely to emergencies. ⏱️
🔊 When you hear those sirens wailing and see those flashing lights, please remember to PULL TO THE RIGHT and yield the way! It may seem simple, but it makes a world of difference. By creating a clear path, you're allowing our crews to reach the scene quickly and provide services to those in distress. 🏥
Here are a few quick tips to ensure you respond safely and effectively when emergency vehicles approach:
🚗 Stay Calm: Don't panic, and avoid sudden maneuvers that could endanger yourself or others. Keep a steady hand on the wheel.
🚙 Signal and Move Right: Signal your intention and gradually move to the right side of the road, out of the way of emergency vehicles.
🚛 Come to a Complete Stop: If you're at an intersection, pull over to the right and come to a complete stop until all emergency vehicles have passed.
🚴♀️🚶♂️ Pedestrians and Cyclists: If you're walking or biking, try to move to the closest sidewalk or designated area until the emergency vehicles have safely passed.
📢 Let's work together to ensure a safe and efficient response during emergencies. Your cooperation and support make a significant impact on our ability to provide lifesaving care to those in need. ❤️
Thank you, Seven Hills community, for your ongoing support and for keeping our roads clear during emergencies. Stay safe, stay informed, and join us in honoring our incredible EMS heroes this week! 🚑👨⚕️👩⚕️
