In an ever-growing small town community, drivers are reminded of the importance of flashing green lights which signals a volunteer firefighter enroute to an emergency.
Nearly 60% of Ontario’s firefighters are volunteers who commit almost full time to their duties.
With 457 fire departments across Ontario, 426 of them consist of part time or volunteer firefighters.
Today, many still forget that a flashing green light on the roads is a sign of a volunteer firefighter answering a call and needs to be treated just like any emergency vehicle.
Residents are reminded when you see a flashing green light on the roads – pull over and allow the vehicle to pass.
