I am a volunteer fire fighter. Would I get into trouble if I was speeding to go to a fire call?

I live about 10 minutes away from my fire station and if a call comes in would i be able to drive faster and not get in trouble?

    Apply for a red beacon and siren permit and take a "code-three" driving course. Until then, don't speed and obey all traffic laws.

    Although the officer is more likely to give you a break, you can still get a ticket. You could also be dismissed from the fire department.

    Speeding without emergency lights is dangerous, as the other drivers you encounter don't know you have an emergency. You need to either get approval from your fire chief to install emergency lights or you need to obey traffic laws.

    you could get a ticket unless you're authorized to have a red light and siren, but if you know the cop he'd probably let you go.
