When emergency personnel is responding to a scene as a driver you should?

You're the first emergency personnel on the scene of an overturned tanker. The driver appears motionless in the cab of the vehicle. A driver must not follow an authorized emergency vehicle that responds to a call or alarm within 500 feet. If this happens, use common sense by slowing down and getting out of the way of the emergency vehicle so they can proceed safely.

Wisconsin law (State Statute 346.1) states that operators of a vehicle shall give way and immediately drive their vehicle to a position as close as possible and parallel to the right edge or the right edge of the shoulder of the road, free from any intersection and, unless otherwise directed by an officer stop and stand in that position until the authorized emergency vehicle has passed. While emergency vehicles may disregard traffic laws, operators must drive with due regard to the safety of all people using the roads.
