Yield to CPES Emergency Vehicles
Castle Pines Emergency Services vehicles are equipped with red and blue emergency lights and sirens to allow officers to respond to fire alarms, medical alarms, and other emergency calls for service within the Village. The Douglas County Sheriff certifies the department to use those emergency lights and sirens to respond to those calls. Colorado traffic code requires drivers to yield the right of way to emergency vehicles when their emergency equipment is activated. Please remember to yield the right of way to responding units from the Sheriff’s Office, the South Metro Fire District, and Emergency Services.
