Compared to the states that do not allow them at all? Or the states that only allow one device with a certain (Low) candlepower?
Too many pages to read through them all, so if someone already posted this forgive me. Pennsylvania firefighters/EMTs are allowed blue or blue/white withOUT siren. Fire/EMS officers are allowed red or red/white WITH siren.
As a long-time scanner enthusiast, I know that there are several sites on the web that cover scanner laws state-by-state.
Anybody know of a similar site on lights? If there isn't, it would take a bit of research, but might prove informative. Even bona fide emergency vehicle lighting requirements vary somewhat around the country. Only California requires a steady-burning red facing front, and NY now allows a blue light facing the rear, f'rinstance.
Does any body know the Alabama rules on lights??
Everything you need to know.
Short answer - no you can't.

Way to many pages to read through so if someone already posted this then my apologies. Here in NY Chiefs and Assistant Chiefs can run red lights and sirens w/ white if they want it. everyone else including capt's and lieut. can run blue lights w/ no siren, but they can have one red light facing the rear. For the most part everyone uses all blue. FF's can have white as well, but still thats up to them
Of course, now some bozo pulls someone over for speeding with his POV...
NY- FF= BLUE
EMS = GREEN
CHIEF OR Certified Medical cars (EMT-I) or better, Red with Siren.
its suppose to be just 1 bulb that's visible 360 all the way around, but, I haven't met one officer who enforces it.
I shouldn't post to this thread but jsut an FYI....
if you are ever in KY and you see the blue lights blaring behind you, you best pull over. The State boys (Troopers) don't take kindly to people not pulling over for them. And for any vollie guy coming from a state where blue lights are used for fire service, your lights better not be visible because you can get a ticket. blue lights are reserved for police only in KY.
well that wont be a issue for me sence i dont think theres blue lites here for fire
