    Question Emergency lights in personal vehicles

    I'm curious to know how many states allow firefighters to have emergency lights in their personal vehicle? Also how many firefighters from Minnesota think we should be able to get them?

    Hmmmmm apparently I need to clarify, I do not use my hazards for anything other than if I'm broken down LOL, certainly not to respond. I can't believe that someone might have thought that

    Why are you such an ***. The way you talk to people on these forums you would think that you owned this web site. What ever happened to firefighters being brothers? I have to question if you are even an actual firefighter.

    Thank you for your opinion smokeeater, I'll take it under advisement.......... oh wait a minute, your opinion means Jack to me.
    Oh and as for the "actual firefighter" bit, nah, you busted me, I just play one on tv. Thanks for outing me though, I've been such a tortured soul over that, not sure how to tell my friends or my family. Thanks for showing me the way.

    Someone, please, kill this thread now before it turns into another...

    Oh forget it

    Smokeeater, just calm down a little. This is a topic that has been beat to death, resurrected, and then beat some more. I can understand why you would want to ask, but those of us who have been here for a while can get tired of the same questions over and over. Before posting on a topic that might even seem to be controversial in the slightest sense of the word (or a fairly common topic), take a few minutes to quickly browse some older threads to see if your question has been previously answered. Hope this helps...

    And BTW... they are allowed in SC

    Smokeeater,

    These forums are real heavy on sarcasm. You have just stumbled into a topic that always degenerates into chaos. Opinions on the subject of POV lights vary greatly and are hotly contested. Sorry you wandered into all of this unaware, but it's not personal until you make it so. (ie: calling someone an ***) Just a "heads up" -46

    Don't even waste my time with your challenges of how many infernos I've put out............ITS NOT EVEN RELEVANT. I asked a simple question you you people have to turn it in to a big deal.

    Why can't everybody be as nice as this guy. It wasn't personal until he had to roll his eyes with the little icon. It was an honest question

    Hey Pfire

    I spotted the ultimate "Whakers Light" at Galls.

    1,000,000 candlepower, dash mounted, and only flashes in the drivers face.

    Its called the "Gall Buster"
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.
