rarely did our guys hold the siren down all the time....
it would be used appropriately depending on the circumstances.

coming up behind you, the would give a blip to get you to look in your mirrors, but with you all the way over to the right edge of the pavement ( I assume that is what you did? )

they would have just kept tooting it on occasion to be sure no cross traffic got in the way.

Here in Oologah, OK.... IF they are running to an emergency, they hold it down because they will be overtaking traffic.

most of us around here, pull over and slow down or completely stop:
yes, even on the interstates.....

I think you should have hugged the right edge, and slowed way down.
make it obvious to them you know they are there.

IMO, you were wrong to give them any uncourteous actions.

they don't need that hassle. they are already stressed out.
