Even though this is from Jacksonville, Florida, this happens right here in Bethel Park. Our firefighters frequently have to stop and wait for traffic to stop and clear in order to proceed through intersections. If you are in the oncoming lane of traffic, you still must pull to the right and come to a complete stop.

75 P.a.C.S. § 3325 states "upon the immediate approach of an emergency vehicle making use of an audible signal and visual signals [...], the driver of every other vehicle shall yield the right-of-way and shall immediately drive to a position parallel to, and as close as possible to, the right-hand edge or curb of the roadway clear of any intersection and shall stop and remain in that position until the emergency vehicle has passed [...]."

Be aware that you can be cited for this by our friends at the Bethel Park Police Department. The best way to prevent from being cited for this is to do the right thing: pull to the right for sirens and lights.
