    Question Yellow with green

    We use Green and Yellow- I like it, but I'm used to it. It's definitely non-traditional...

    I like the white over red, not only because that's what we use, but because it looks classy. I do like that Chicago look though.

    O.K., it's been 4 1/2 years since I started this thread! Thought I bring it back to life and see what happens! Also, for a large variety of apparatus color combinations and designs, visit the Youngstown Fire Forums - Fire Apparatus Color Dictionary! YFD Forums - Fire Apparatus COLOR Dictionary.

    Call me old-fashioned (in emergency services since 1978), but fire trucks should be red or have red in their paint scheme. My department used to have puke-green, but thankfully has gone back to white over red as we replaced our apparatus the last few years.
    I also think police cars should be black/white and ambulances white/orange. These are the colors most ordinary people associate with these vehicles.

    Default Peer pressure?

    I have been in the fire service since 1978. My department has the white over red color scheme. Most of us actually perfer the black over red (I do). The reason we haven't changed (other than cost) is because of our close proximity to Chicago (35 miles). Nobody wants to hear, "trying to be like Chicago!?"! Oh well...white over red is my 2nd favorite.

    All of our trucks are the lime green/yellow with the white reflective stripe. They look cool and are highly visable. Yet I still love the black over red like chicago.

    I like both the white over red and the black over red. My department runs white over red but I think the black over red still looks good

    At the risk of being unusual, I really like the rigs from Springfield, Oregon. they're bright orange with blue stripes. I'm sure there are some photos of the trucks floating around the internet. They do have a white over red ladder truck with blue stripes, but thats only because they bought it used, and are too cheap to paint it to match the rest of the fleet.

    This what our last 7 Engines look like for paint, and the next 4. Honestly, I would have also painted the roll up doors red also.

    I also like the black over red.

    Not only should the trucks be red, but all the firefighter's pov's should be red.

    And I guess all the cops should be forced to drive blue cars, doctors should be forced to drive white cars, federal government workers black cars, lawyers grey cars and so on? Hell insurance fraud would be taken to a whole new level. Want to get rich? Just get hit by the right color car!!
