|Let them through............It could be YOU...!!!!
Research Engr Iqbal Ahmed Khan (Al-Khobar)
emergency, minute can mean the difference between life and death, and
crucial seconds can be lost if drivers don't make way for emergency
Take all sirens seriously, and make way for the Ambulance, Fire Truck or
Police vehicle. Someday you may be one calling for help, or the life on the
line might be a friend, neighbor or someone you love.
How you can help......
You too can help the emergency services reach a person in need:
Use the letters S.I.R.E.N. to remember the right way to yield to emergency
Drive defensively, keep the noise level down in your car and look for more
than one emergency vehicle approaching when you hear a siren.
Check your rear-view mirror, scan in front of you and on both sides of your
vehicle, try to estimatethe closing speed of the emergency vechile and plan
your next move.
React quickly, but calmly and scan in all directions before pulling over.
Always use turn signals when exiting the roadway and don't slam on the
brakes or pull over suddenly.
Before re-entering the road, make a visual sweep in all directions, turn on
your signals, and gradually merge back into the traffic.
Don't stop at a place that does't have enough room to pull over safely and
never follow or try to outrun an emergency vehicle.
When an emergency vechile is approaching, pull over as far to the right as
possible. Don't cross in front of an emergency vehicle, which is engaged in
an emergency sitiuation, it might be stopped at a busy intersection, wait
for the vehicle to pass clearly.
Not every emergency medical response requires light and sirens, but next
time you encounter such a sitiuation, yield immediately so that the
emergency personnel can reach the person who is waiting for help to arrive.
REMEMBER: It's important to let them through.....next time, it could be you.
