Crash Responder Safety Week
Published on November 17, 2022
November 14 through 18, 2022, is Crash Responder Safety Week. Three injury crashes occur every minute in the United States, putting nearly 39,000 incident responders potentially in harm's way every day.
To respect our roadside heroes, please help keep our first responders safe by slowing down and moving over when you see firefighters, police, public works and others out working to save lives and keep our community safe.
According to Washington’s Move Over Law, RCW 46.61.212, drivers approaching an emergency zone are required to either move over to another lane in the same direction, if it is safe to do so, or if a driver is unable to move over safely, proceed with caution and reduce the speed of their vehicle.
Stay safe and alert out there!
