Yield to Flashing Green Light

I was walking on Innisfil Beach Rd a few weeks ago when I saw a fire truck race past with lights and siren on. Almost immediately I saw two vehicles rushing in the opposite direction with a green light flashing on the dashboard. Evidently, the drivers in front of them didn’t realize that the green light indicates that these are volunteer firefighters urgently heading to the fire hall for vehicles and equipment. Fortunately, they did manage to safely pass the cars ahead of them with a brief delay.

New residents to Innisfil may not be aware that volunteer responders are equipped with a green emergency light. If you see a green flashing light in your rear view mirror please pull over immediately and let them pass. Share this information with your new neighbours.
