In case of an emergency the incident location must be reached by emergency vehicles as fast as possible. But driving an emergency vehicle is a dangerous task. The risk being involved in accidents, being insured or killed is much higher with an emergency vehicle than with a private vehicle. Cooperative traffic management strategies can support emergency vehicle drivers by switching the traffic lights on the way of the emergency vehicles accordingly to reach the incident location fast and safe. The approach was simulated in SUMO using the simulation scenario of the city of Bologna.
