St. Clair Township relies on volunteer firefighters to respond to an emergency. St. Clair Township Fire Department would like to remind residents and motorists that vehicles with green flashing lights are being driven by volunteer firefighters who are responding to an emergency call. As a courtesy, drivers are asked, to please yield the road to these vehicles. This may mean pulling over, if it is safe to do so, to allow the vehicle to pass. Volunteer firefighters responding to an emergency typically need to drive their personal vehicles to a nearby fire station where they can transfer into a fire vehicle before responding to the scene of an incident. Pulling over when you see a firefighter’s green light can have a big impact because every second counts.
