Volunteer firefighters in Hamilton use flashing green lights when they are responding to a call. The Highway Traffic Act prevents volunteer firefighters from speeding, blowing red lights and stop signs. By pulling over when drivers see a flashing green light in their rear view mirror, they are helping to improve response times for our volunteer (part-time) firefighters, who are headed to the station to change and join their brigade.
Since we have hybrid fire stations in Ward 9, you may encounter a car with a flashing green light. Please pullover and help our part-time firefighters responding to an alarm.
