Emergency Vehicles and You

When an emergency vehicle has its lights and siren on, it is responding to an emergency. It is the law and YOUR responsibility to:

  • Pull to the right side of the road and STOP until the emergency vehicle has passed.
  • Give all emergency vehicles the right-of-way.
  • Keep back at least 200 feet from an emergency vehicle when it is responding with lights and sirens.
  • Do not drive over fire hoses.
  • Drive carefully around an emergency scene.

In an Emergency… Can you be found?

Are your house numbers clearly labeled either on your mailbox or your house?

  • Use LARGE VISIBLE NUMBERS
  • Use REFLECTIVE NUMBERS on BOTH sides of the mailbox

   

  • West Seneca Town Code: House numbers shall be affixed to the structure in a prominent location, facing the street and next to the front door or, if no door is present, next to the corner of the structure closest to the driveway.
  • House numbers shall be at least four inches in height.
  • The numbers shall be so placed that they will not be obstructed by trees, shrubbery, porches or other extensions of the building.
  • Wherever practicable, said numbers shall be placed near some light, or source of illumination, so that they may be readily seen at night
