I wanted to ask this question to all the vol FF/EMTs out there. I am curious what your state allows you to utilize in your private vehicle in response to emergencies. I have volunteered in a couple of different states and have responded with and without lights due to dept policies. I would enjoy hearing from as many as possible. I know some information on a couple of states if I make a mistake please reply.
Indiana FF=Blue/No Siren EMS=Green/No Siren
Montana FF/EMS= Red/No Siren
Alaska FF/EMS= Blue/No Siren
Texas FF= Red or Red and Blue/ with Siren
Nebraska FF= Red and Blue/ with Siren
Vermont FF/EMS Red/ with Siren
Ohio FF= Red/ with Siren
Michigan FF= Red/ with Siren
Washington FF= Green? Old info, do you guys still use green and how is it utilized?
