I need some advice

Hi you all this has been on my mind for some time now and a recent experience brought it back to mind back in either November or December I was discussing something with my English teacher in the parking lot heading to the car when a fire squad and ambulance sped in I didn't see them till I was pulled aside by my mom. They just about hit me I didn't think anything of it at the time but now it scares me.they showed negligence that could kill someone. As fast as they were going I didn't have time to figure out which way to move aside
I talked to my mom about it and she agrees with me I decided to go to the station and sort of give them a safety lecture I figured it might have a better effect coming from me
Do you guys have an idea on what I should say

Good luck in whatever you deicde to do.

If you feel so strongly about this, and understandably so. You can always send a complaint next time. They will find out which emergency vehicle it was and which driver. They will look into it and probably reprimand the driver.

I am not telling you to do this, just saying that this is a way to make your voice heard for that type of situation.

I am sure it will happen again, I think we all have had similar situations.

Keep your head up!

I understand that but at least in my state it was a break in protocol they are suppose to obey traffic laws especially in a school zone
And it that wasn't the first time ive been clipped by one in a wile back I just want to tell them to be a bit more careful cause I'm not the only one that could be hurt if they don't slow down

They have to drive fast to rush people to the hospital. That's happened to me many times.
