Emergency Vehicle Response



Emergency Vehicle Response systems allow the driver of an emergency vehicle to control the traffic signal at an intersection that the vehicle is approaching.

Systems work in various ways, but the basic idea is that a coded message is sent from the emergency vehicle to the traffic signal controller cabinet. This message tells the controller which lanes of the intersection should receive a green light.

A few of the benefits to utilizing this type of system are:

  • The risk of an emergency vehicle having an accident at an intersection can be greatly reduced if the cross traffic has the red light.

  • Response time by an emergency vehicle is reduced.

  • Reduced liability risk to the city due to both of the above noted benefits.
