SAFE DRIVING

FRIENDS, WE ARE HERE TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY AND THE FIRE SERVICE.

WITH THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING ESPECIALLY IN INCLEMENT WEATHER SUCH AS

SNOW, ICE, ETC. PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY AND SLOWLY.

WHEN YOU APPROACH AN ACCIDENT SCENE OR ROAD CLOSURE SLOW DOWN, THIS PREVENTS ACCIDENTS NOT ONLY TO YOUR VEHICLE BUT TO THE FIRE SERVICE, POLICE AND OTHERS

ASSISTING AT AN EMERGENCY SCENE.

IT'S OUR JOB AS FIRE POLICE TO DIRECT TRAFFIC AT SCENES OF EMERGENCIES. WE WEAR BRIGHT LIME YELLOW VESTS, JACKETS AND HEAD GEAR SO YOU CAN SEE US BOTH DAY AND 

AT NIGHT. WE ALSO USE TRAFFIC CONTROL SIGNS, TRAFFIC CONES AND FLARES TO WARN ONCOMING TRAFFIC OF AN EMERGENCY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING SAFE WHILE DRIVING.

Distracted Driving-Cell phones

“An estimated 25 percent of crashes in 2011 can be attributed to cell phone use while driving”
