Flashing Green Lights

Flashing Green Lights

Posted on March 16th, 2021
Some new signage has gone up to remind motorists that flashing green lights are being used by firefighters in the Town of Edson.
 
Green lights are used by our volunteer firefighters responding to the firehall during an emergency.
 
The purpose of the lights are to enhance public safety and awareness by identifying Edson Firefighters who are in the process of responding to the hall. The lights do not give any special privileges or powers to those responding volunteers, but gives other motorists and pedestrians notice that there is an emergency taking place and to yield if it is safe to do so.
 
Please watch for our responders utilizing these new lights and keep our roads safe for all users.
