Depends on a lot of details. Depending on the design, a proper BRT (as compared to "express buses") may not necessarily detour easily, especially if electrified, or in separated lanes. In either of those cases, any accident that blocks the RT line blocks the service.

Emergency vehicles use Tram tracks elsewhere, no reason they can't here. Any emergency that leaves emergency services parked on the tracks, has likely closed the whole road anyway.

I guess the reasoning is, perhaps benefits of faster throughput 99.9% of the time more than outweigh for the fraction of a percent of the time that the road closes due to a major incident?
