My Captain and I are trying to get our Chief to replace 2 strobes that are one the top rear corners of the ladder. We have had (2) 4" round X 8" high strobes for the 17 years I have been on the dept. We had (2) round 10" Hallogen lights on the rear above the tail board and replaced those 10 years ago with 10" X 10" square strobes. We figure we already have plenty of strobe light back there, we would like to put a red and yellow rotator up on top. The chief told us to get him some information and he would look into it. He personally believes in strobes all around the trucks so getting to agree to rotators is going to be tough. I am looking to you for what brand and possibly models you have that seem to be durable, eye catching, and have plenty of flash. Kind of thinking something with a speed gear or something. Also I have seen other dept's run the yellow light on the left rear and thought it looked to be a good idea and approached the chief about that a couple of years ago and he said no. If anyone is running yellow on the rear, does it seem to help with the visibility of the unit to other vehicles driving down the road? We don't have an arrow stick like the engines and really don't have anywhere to mount one that won't get busted off.
