    Dots - save yourself some dough. Go to a local sign shop and have them cut out 3/4" dots from your selected material. They'll probably do it for a fraction of what you'll pay for a commercially available dots...

    If the diamond plate isn't new, make sure you prep it well -light acid wash for aluminum.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    Although I certainly understand your premise, rear reflectice chevrons make a remarkable difference in the visibilty of apparatus both day and night and responding or returning. IMO, it is actually a NFPA recommendation that makes sense and I can buy in to.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
