Move to the Right...for Sirens and Lights!
If you or someone you love is in need of emergency assistance, you want help to get there right away. Did you know that there’s one thing everyone can do to help responders provide this emergency assistance as quickly as possible? It’s as simple as Moving to the Right for Sirens and Lights!
Richmond County’s emergency personnel estimate that 50% of our motorists know what to do when they see an emergency vehicle with lights and sirens on…or when they come upon an accident scene. With more traffic than ever on our roadways, the problems just continues to get worse. The intersections especially dangerous for emergency vehicles when running an emergency call are Berckman Rd. at Washington Rd. , Gordon Hwy. at Deans Bridge Rd. , Hwy. 25 (Peach Orchard Rd.) at Winsor Spring Rd., and Walton Way at Gordon Hwy.
For the sake of the victims, the responders, and your own safety…please help us to get Richmond County motorists informed on what to do when emergency vehicles are approaching or when they come upon the scene of an accident!
