How To Handle Emergency Vehicle Situations

While most drivers follow the rules of the road and know what to do in various situations, some may not be aware of what to do when emergency vehicles are coming. It is a process that the law requires each driver to adhere to. Here are three things you should know about when driving and dealing with emergency vehicles.

Know What to Look For
Emergency vehicles come in various different forms and styles. While many of them have emergency lighting, some are only equipped with horns or words plastered on the vehicle. Police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks are three of the most common ones people will see. Other ones to be aware of are S.W.A.T trucks, utility trucks, and private-owned vehicles used by qualified personnel.
Know What To Do
If you are driving and you hear sirens or horns look in your mirrors to see where they are coming from. Finding out what direction the vehicle is going is imperative. Once you see it and know where it is, slow down and pull over to the side of the road. If there is no room to pull over, come to a complete stop where you are. Do not proceed until after the vehicle has passed you and make sure you look for others before you begin driving again.
Know What Not To Do
There are some things you should not do when you see an emergency vehicle. One of the biggest things you can do is remain calm while they are passing you or in your vicinity. It’s easy to get jumpy and do your own thing, but if you remember to adhere to the law and pull over it will be alright. You also shouldn’t follow the vehicle to scene it is going to. If you are going in the same direction as it, keep a safe distance behind it and do not try to keep up with it.

These things are to keep in mind when the vehicle is headed to a specific scene or location. These steps do not need to be taken if you see the vehicle driving as any other driver would.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
