Red lights outside a fire station

If you see two red lights operating outside a fire station then you must stop.

If there are red lights flashing then it's likely that a fire engine will be exiting the station on the way to an emergency.

If the lights continue to flash after the fire engine has gone, another fire engine might be coming, so you must wait until the lights have stopped.
