Driving You Crazy: Emergency light at Pecos and Hacienda
News

LAS VEGAS - A viewer asks why the emergency light at Pecos Road and Hacienda Avenue doesn’t turn red when a fire truck is leaving nearby Fire Station 25.

The Clark County Fire Department says the light is not malfunctioning. Fire officials say the emergency signal must be turned on by one of the station’s firefighters when they leave for a call.

A station engineer says once the signal is triggered, the crew has approximately one minute to leave the station before the signal automatically turns off.

Although turning on the signal is a high priority for the stations, sometimes, crews forget to hit the signal as they rush out the door to help those in need.

Clark County Fire officials say they informed the station captain of the lapse to ensure firefighters trigger the light when they respond to an emergency.
