Safer, Quicker Emergency Responses are in the Future
for Franklin's Police & Fire Departments 

Two of Franklin’s three paramedic ambulances have recently been installed with Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) systems.  This is a cooperative effort between the Police and Fire Departments to improve emergency response times and to enhance the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and emergency responders. The larger benefit is to those needing emergency service and transports to hospitals.  This will be a multi-year program to equip Franklin’s emergency vehicles and traffic signals throughout the community.


These systems are activated when Police or Fire units respond to emergencies with their lights and sirens. An “emitter” in the responding vehicle sends a wireless electronic signal to a sensor installed on the traffic control signal at the intersection. The sensor can tell from what direction the police car, ambulance, or fire truck is coming and takes control of the traffic lights as it approaches the intersection. The emergency vehicle is given the green light, while the opposing lights turn yellow, then red – stopping the traffic coming from other directions. This eliminates the need for emergency vehicles to cross traffic against a red light providing faster response and a safer crossing.  Read More
