    LOS ANGELES, CA:
    The Sounds of Sirens...


    Dear Friend of the LAFD:

    Many of you have asked about new sirens being used on LAFD emergency response vehicles. Specifically, about the mechanical sirens you are hearing on new Los Angeles Fire Department ambulances.

    Along with "what", many of you have asked "why".

    In recordings, films and television shows, we often hear both the piercing rise and fall of mechanical sirens as well as the synthesized rhythmic wail and yelp of electronic sirens.

    Is there a difference or a reason to use one over the other?

    The benefits and drawbacks of mechanical sirens (often referred to as "growlers" or "coaster sirens") vs. electronic sirens has been debated by fire service safety and fleet maintenance professionals for many years. The results of such discussions are far from conclusive, and as a result, there is still much being assessed about these devices. Such is the case today at the Los Angeles Fire Department.

    The LAFD historically used the famous B&M Super Chief mechanical siren - and not the ubiquitous Federal Q2b - on heavy apparatus until the early 1980's. Often times this was as an adjunct to electronic sirens, which gained popularity during the 1960's.

    To listen to a professional recording of (Hall-Scott gasoline powerplant equipped!) LAFD Task Force 10 leaving their station in the mid-1960's and very gently tapping their Super-Chief's with the signature "Siro-Drift" sound:

    http://www.lafd.org/hs.wav

    Most of the LAFD's light vehicles, including ambulances have exclusively used electronic sirens as their primary warning device since their inception. Rather than having a motor that spins an impeller, these microchip equipped devices work much like a music synthesizer (albeit playing but two not so catchy tunes). Highly durable, easy to use and less-taxing on the battery and alternator of light vehicles these electronic sirens have proven popular across North America.

    With a massive increase in warning lights, radios and other electronic equipment on the Engines and Trucks, the LAFD phased out the use of mechanical sirens, which are notorious electric power hogs. The tremendous and often unpredictable amperage draw (which can be a killer to MDT's and laptop computers) and which spurred maintenance and reliability concerns - combined with the previous need to constantly control the siren with a foot switch, spelled the demise in the use of mechanical sirens at the LAFD.

    Beginning in 1988, the entire LAFD fleet was switched over to an electronic siren that was integrated into the Motorola radio control head that arrived with our then new 800 MHZ radio system.

    With civilian passenger vehicles becoming more well insulated, and an increase in electronic "siren-like" sounds appearing in everything from video games to car alarms and with Fire Service responses - and collisions - on the rise nationwide, there has been a notion that we as Firefighters and Paramedics may wish to return to a more unique or traditional sound.

    In fact, that very notion has led firms to introduce several *mechanical sounding* electronic sirens, including an electronic version designed by Federal Signal to sound like their renowned model Q2b.

    Contrary to what some have surmised, the LAFD is not using the new generation of "mechanical-sounding" electronic sirens in new apparatus.

    The most recent delivery of ambulances to the LAFD's 140+ unit fleet are indeed equipped with an adjunct mechanical siren, which is produced by San Bernardino-based:

    http://www.timberwolfsirens.com

    ...at 28 amps running and 78 amps peak - and with a convenient automatic cycle feature and the ability to be operated or overridden by a floor switch - they are far less thirsty for precious on-board electric power than the venerable Q2b, which is reported to gulp 125 amps running and a walloping 350 peak!

    Again, the newest LAFD ambulances are still equipped with an electronic siren (wail and yelp) that meets all State of California Class A warning device standards, as well as the new Timberwolf mechanical siren as an adjunct. The ambulances also are equipped with the hi-lo air horns as an auxiliary signaling and warning system. The use of the Timberwolf siren (and a host of -far- more important equipment on the new ambulances) will be formally assessed by the LAFD's Equipment Engineering Unit on a continuing basis.

    As far as heavy apparatus, the City's MICLA program has funded a split-order of new Pumpers from both Seagrave and Pierce. The new rigs will also be equipped with a mechanical siren as an adjunct. Half of the new deliveries will have the
    Timberwolf, while the other will be fitted with the Federal Q2b. This to my knowledge, will be the first time that an LAFD apparatus has been officially equipped with a Federal brand mechanical siren. As mentioned above, the LAFD's Equipment Engineering Unit will be similarly assessing the commonalities and differences of these products.

    We wish to make it very clear that the use of any product or service by the LAFD does not in any way imply endorsement.

    As for questions regarding where new heavy apparatus will be assigned...

    Pursuant of protocol, heavy apparatus from the 1980's is scheduled for rotation into our reserve and relief fleet in the coming years as new rigs come into service. First to go will likely be the many 1984 Seagrave, which though spectacular in appearance and superbly maintained, are nearing the end of their 20-year life span as LAFD first responders. You can expect to see them entering their five-plus years of anticipated reserve and relief duty in the coming weeks.

    Generally speaking, the LAFD "dominoes" new apparatus based upon response district and company needs, as well as mileage and accrued maintenance. A decision as to which Fire Station will get a new rig or a dominoed one from another station will ultimately be determined by Headquarters staff of the LAFD's Bureau of Emergency Services.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

    Brian Humphrey
