VIDEO: Firefighters have a tough job, and Valley drivers don't make it any easier.
Capt. Nick Gonzalez of the Peoria Fire-Medical Department said firefighters are continually having to avoid motorists who don't pull over when they see or hear an emergency vehicle.
When you see flashing lights or hear a siren, you're supposed to slow down and pull (safely) to the right -- as far as you can -- and wait until the fire truck, ambulance or police car passes.
It doesn't always happen.
Some vehicles stop in the middle of the road.
Others pull off to the left.
Still others will try and outrun the emergency vehicles.
In an effort to get drivers' attention, the Peoria Fire-Medical Department has installed a device called The Rumbler on some of its new vehicles.
The Rumbler is like a loud stereo system that will send out vibrations to cars in front of them.
