ok, blue for vol. fire and EMS personal, and no siren, however ... The use of an eletrical air horn is in the greay area due to the fact that this is not considered a siren but an aux. horn. Red light for cheif officers and FP capt and Lt. All lights are required to be regestered with the state, and state law mandates that ANY vehiceal with red in use must also have an audible siren while it is in motion. And all vehicals must respond with due regard. Blus is strictly a curtousey light... no laws r to be broken. Green is for IC only, yellow is for construction or tow trucks, or a rodside hazzard light. Purple is for a funeral procession. Red/Blue mix for Police And Corriner and FP company units only, and game commisioner. I belive that all emergency personel should be allowed red and siren, after all we all are of the same importance. I would like to see PA change these laws, let me know some feedback on that one anyone in PA.

OK, I'm confused. In Illinois, green lights signify incident command. Also what is WAC/RCW? Thanks and stay safe!

Comment by Jeanine on September 1, 2008 at 2:17am
In washington state there is actually a WAC/RCW about green lights on personnaly operated vehicles. You might wanna check it out....Good luck!!

When I joined the F.D. in 1994, they were using blue lights (Illinois). We just stopped the practice due to our insurance carrier not liking it. I might add that in the 14 years that I've been here we've never had a FF injured by using a light in their POV. Stay safe!
