Sheriff Asks Public to Yield to Emergency Vehicles

Marion County Sheriff Jason Sandholdt and several deputies were on scene at the fire escorting water trucks back and forth from a hydrant on Washington and Highway 163 to the fire. Sandholdt would like to remind motorists of Iowa law that requires vehicles to yield to emergency vehicles. Fines for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle or an unsafe approach to a stationary vehicle can be up to $195.
