What does 'an und los' mean? I read 'an und los' in this context: 'Sie rennen zum Notarztwagen. Türen zu, Blaulicht und Sirene an und los'. Does it mean 'Blaulicht an und Sirene los' or something else? Thanks in advance.

It's short for: anmachen = to switch on zumachen = to close losfahren = to drive away (or Los! = Go!)

"An" refers to both "Blaulicht" and "Sirene": – Türen zu – Blaulicht und Sirene an (= Blaulicht an und Sirene an) – und los
