    Straight Answer - None of us are Law Enforcement Personnel........ Blue in Maryland is Very Strictly LE only. A few VFDs have a Blue Light or two on Apparatus, and that's tolerated, But a Blue on a POV and you're in deep Doo Doo.........


    Other Answer - We don't need lights, we go so fast, we get there before the Light Waves do....... Just last week, I left home at 09:00 to run to Mexico City to pick up some Parts. After picking up the stuff, I stopped at a Carryout there and picked up Lunch. I got home while the Tacos were still warm........

    I've got some extra ones at the Station. . . . . . . . . . But they are ALF Chrome Yellow!

    On a side note, my four year daughter asked me the other day "what do the red fire trucks do daddy?" I told her "Honey they bring the Yellow trucks water while we fight the fire!"

    More likely, if they sent the yellow trucks to tag hydrants, every time they stopped a gaggle of school kids would try to get on.

    I wasn't being critical.

    I found the use of gaggle humerous.

    Just like yellow fire trucks.

    They do seem to fit together.
