REMEMBER: Driving during the day can be dangerous, but driving at night can double your chances for an accident. When you can’t see what is ahead, you don’t know what to anticipate as you drive towards it. As the sun goes down, your awareness of the road and cars around you must go up.
Units on Scene: Engine 1101, Rescue 11, 1100 A2 & A3, Comand 11, FP 11, Utility 1181
