    Not to be negative...But this kind of goes hand in hand with Jr.'s and Blue Lights....NO !! There isn't a reason I don't think for any volunteer Fire/EMS Personnel to have a siren...Let alone Jr.'s Just an accident waiting to happen...

    Uhm, JR's in our department are allowed to have blue lights, but NO ONE, unless they are a chief officer, are allowed to have a siren.

    To Brian, Man we volunteers most of the time have a lot of traffic on the roads. In my mind if most of us didn't have lights and siren on our pov's we would be screwed. For those of us that live more than 5 or 6 minutes from the station has to use thier pov to get to the fire. We also cover a large area and aid other fd's in the area when in need. I don't know what it is like in your area but here it is almost a most.

    Cool

    No one should have Lights or Sirens on POV. The fire will eventually go out.
    No need to risk YOUR safety and the other motorists on the road, just not worth it.

    Hey guys! I have an idea!!! Why don't we all stop trying to be "the big man" on Firehouse.com and take a joke for what it is. All of you who act big and tough and say you whacker, you weenie, you doofus, when I joke about a siren need go act serious somewhere else, cause I and others are sick of it. If we want to have a conversation on sirens, we'll do just that. If we want to make a whole forum just for sirens, we'll do it. I don't think it's wrong for explorers/jrs to have a conversation on sirens. Is it? It's not as if that's all we care about?! Personally, I love firefighting to death. I'm always talking about different issues concerning firefighting and when I bring up the topic of sirens, I don't need to be bashed! There's a big difference between what people say about lights/sirens on here and how they actually act when responding. For the most part, none of you guys know anybody on here and how they respond. So chill out. All of you. And if someone talks about lights/sirens, you are always open to your opinion, but just don't come in, call them names and bust their chops.

    In the state of PA, which is where I am from, no one but the top 4 officers is to have a siren. I agree with the law. Back in the day Juniors were allowed to have bluelight as long as they had a car, with a good lin number. We would contact the local police and check on things, but you were able to have a light. So it is okay, but you must remember you are all still juniors, and as a junior it is you job to try and learn as much as you can able a craft that is slowly dieing. The "art" of fire fighting. Not to go running blue lights. Our juniors had go through some very hard training before being allowed into the Senior company at age 18. And Even then you were taken under the wing of someone with some years to their name. It sounds hard but we have a rep of producing some of the best fireman and woman in the state.

    Thank you
    Joe

    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.
