Give Emergency Vehicles the Right of Way

On May 10, 2014, Nashville Police Officer Michael Petrina, 25 from Germantown, was struck and killed by a motorhome while directing traffic on Interstate 65. Every day, fire fighters, police officers, paramedics and other emergency personnel respond to calls for help, risking their lives to save others. They are required by state law to complete annual training on the proper way to respond to calls using lights and a siren, but we as citizens, can help make the emergency response of fire engines, ambulances and police vehicles safer.
