The Labradorian - - EDITORIAL -

The Happy Val­ley-Goose Bay Fire Chief’s per­sonal ve­hi­cle has been des­ig­nated by Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices NL as an ‘emer­gency ve­hi­cle’ when re­spond­ing to emer­gency calls that are ap­proved by the RCMP, ac­cord­ing to the town.

The Fire Chief’s ve­hi­cle is a dark blue GMC Sierra truck with li­cense plate 1316FF. It is now equipped with a siren, strobe lights on the front grille and back bumper and a red emer­gency light in the wind­shield for the pur­pose of re­spond­ing to fire and emer­gency re­lated mat­ters.

The Town has also added blue de­cals to the mu­nic­i­pal en­force­ment ve­hi­cle, mak­ing it eas­ily dis­tin­guish­able from RCMP ve­hi­cles.

As per the High­way Traf­fic Act, mo­torists are re­quired to safely pull over when the lights and siren are in use on th­ese two ve­hi­cles.
