State law and common sense dictate that vehicles yield to emergency vehicles that are operating their emergency lights and siren. Emergency vehicle drivers are taught to pass on the left whenever possible when responding in emergency mode. When safe, slow down, pull over to the right, and stop.
However, there are circumstances where that may not be possible (e.g., your car is already stopped, and you don't have anywhere to pull over). Simply stay put until the emergency vehicle goes around you. If you are blocking the route of the emergency vehicle, and you are able to pull ahead and over into a clear area, use your turn signal to indicate your intentions, and proceed at a safe speed.
If an emergency vehicle is approaching from the opposite direction, you should pull over and stop. You have no idea if they are proceeding down the road, or are planning on turning into a driveway or intersection right in front of you. You are not required to slow down or pull over for emergency vehicles that are responding in the opposite direction on a divided highway.Never slam on the brakes and stop in the middle of the road when you see emergency vehicles approaching. Make no sudden moves.

The Mutual Aid Agreement the Roselle Fire Department has with nearby communities helps ensure that an ambulance will be available to respond even when there are multiple calls at the same time. You may see ambulances and equipment from Itasca, Bloomingdale, Hanover Park, Elk Grove, or Schaumburg.
Responders use the emergency lights and siren only during a response to an emergency call. Emergency calls are frequently canceled or downgraded while responders are still in route.
Residents using fire pits, whether wood burning or gas-fueled, should be careful to follow safety precautions and local regulations. The Village of Roselle has a local ordinance that regulates any outside open burning. Regulations prohibit the emission of dense smoke from any indoor or outdoor fire so as to cause an annoyance, nuisance, discomfort or negative health effect to other residents. It is unlawful to burn, in any outdoor or indoor fireplace, anything other than natural gas, dry hardwood or softwood logs, branches, commercially manufactured artificial fire logs, or charcoal briquettes. Burning of yard waste is not permitted. If the fire department responds to an open burning complaint and determines that dense smoke is an annoyance, nuisance, or discomfort, they may instruct that the fire be extinguished. Failure to comply could result in a fine.
