Emergency Vehicle Hybrid Beacon

The emergency vehicle hybrid beacon is a special type of beacon assembly that assigns the right-of-way to authorized emergency vehicles leaving their station.

Additional Information


The Emergency Vehicle Hybrid Beacon (EVHB) can be installed where standard traffic signals may not be justified. The MUTCD code requires at least two emergency vehicle hybrid faces for each approach with one located over the roadway. For more specifics see MUTCD 2009 edition, Chapter 4G.

The signal sequencing used for the Emergency Vehicle Hybrid Beacon system is similar to the hybrid pedestrian/HAWK system. As with the pedestrian system, the beacons remain dark until activated. Upon activation by emergency personnel, the hybrid beacon progresses through the following sequence:
