If you answered “C” you are correct. You must safely clear any intersection and yield the right of way to an ambulance. Pull over all the way to the right and stop - if practical - ensuring there is a pathway in both directions.

James and his family had a scary experience when his grandmother had a fall at home a few weeks ago. The amazing BCEHS paramedics in North Vancouver were able to get to his grandmother's side and provide her care. Thank a paramedic or dispatcher:

It’s a whole new EMS service . Patients in BC are getting better care and those who need us the most are getting faster response times. This is only year 1. Two more years of action plan investment continue! We’re building world class EMS for BC integrated into the health system.
