The ambulance service is urging motorists to be aware of what to do when an emergency vehicle approaches.
South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) has created a video to show road users how to act.
Drivers are advised to make sure that they signal properly when moving out of the way of the emergency vehicle, and to avoid endangering pedestrians by mounting the pavement.
Jon Porter, driving standards manager at SCAS said: “Vital seconds in the event of any medical emergency can make a real difference to a patient’s outcome.”Watch the video below.
