Let me just say as a ruralie that we are not allowed to go POV. We must go to our respective stations and follow the guidelines of "2 in 2 out".

It all depends on what your departments SOP's are and should be followed. The OP needs to check with his CO to find out what his departments SOP's are and at that point maybe his CO can let him know what is standard for his area.
Actually I walk across the street to my station... lol
I know... lol... By the time the others show up we are ready to roll.
I make them help with the spring cleaning... hehehe
These Jr FF should not even be thinking about having lights most Dept's have a probie period even if you were on anther FD for years to where you can not have lights or a siren.
Thank you James Burton, you save me from saying it.
I would discourage departments from allowing lights on private vehicles. They offer no special privlidges, at least in my state, confuse other drivers that don' understand what a green light is for and may give the volunteer an impression of entitlement leading to aggressive and or dangerous driving. Most of these areas have few lights and little traffic which are the main time saving benefits of the regular emergency lights. It all comes down to risk benefit.

I agree with this.

I would like to know how many POV accidents there were when someone responded going lights and sirens?
I like that one.
we not allow to light up our pov's in snowflake az
I would but in one department, since we are allowed to drive direct in our 1st due, apparatus respond as soon as a driver shows up. In my other company, you have to be on an apparatus.
