Move to the right or make a right turn if safe to clear the path for the emergency vehicle. As per Use of Highway and Rules of the Road Regulation, Section 65(1): Fail to yield right of way for emergency vehicle, pull motor vehicle over to the right side and stop or remain stopped until emergency vehicle has passed. It is a $243 fine if you do not pull over and stop.
