Hello everyone, I run a volunteer response service and recently partnered with a patient transfer/event medical company. I occasionally come upon accidents and in-lane break downs and was told my unit can run reds (only when stopped) to bring attention for safety. Currently I only run amber/white on unit marked rear and sides with service crest. Local police are fully aware of what we do and we call in to advise when we are on-scene. I haven't found anything in the OHTA about using red when stopped. I know I can't when driving but is there an exemption for emergency safety perposes when stopped at an accident?

I believe you have been misinformed. There is no differentiation between stopped and moving...the Act simply says carry.

Red and blue lights to the front restricted
(14.1) In addition to the lighting requirements in this Part, a police department vehicle may carry lamps that cast red and blue lights, but no other motor vehicle shall carry any lamp that casts red and blue lights to the front. 2007, c. 13, s. 17 (2).

Use of flashing red lights
2. In addition to the vehicles listed in paragraphs 1 to 4 of subsection 62 (15.1) of the Act, the following are vehicles that may carry lamps that cast a red light to the front:

1. A Ministry of Revenue vehicle operated by a provincial offences officer designated under the Provincial Offences Act for the purposes of enforcing the Fuel Tax Act, the Gasoline Tax Act and the Tobacco Tax Act, while the officer is in the course of his or her employment.

2. An aviation and forest fire management vehicle operated by an officer designated under the Forest Fires Prevention Act, while the officer is responding to a fire or other emergency.

3. Revoked: O. Reg. 76/11, s. 2.
