    Default Juniors w/ Blue Lights

    What is the policy concerning your fire departments/ambulance corps with juniors having blue lights? is it allowed? is it not? i just want to see if my department is alone in not allowing juniors with licences to have emergency lights.

    juniors should not have blue lights. in my department, juniors are not permitted to use blue lights. and violation of the rules is handled by the chief and or line officers.
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Here in my little town in Kentucky, Juniors cannot have lights and/or sirens. However, some do. It's really a matter of trust. I have lights in my truck, however, they have never been used outside of my driveway. Personally, I feel we do not need them, but at the price they were going for, I couldn't resist . Plus, I will probably end up selling them. I already sell radios and used turnouts, so it's not really that big of a deal. I guess you could call it my demo unit?

    If any lights are seen on an explorer's car, I have a feeling a call would be made to the police...

    Becides, they aren't allowed to respond anyway.

    Explorers used to be allowed to run with lights, until people abused it, from what I've heard.. So no more lights.

    From what I've heard, in NJ, nobody under 18 is legally allowed to have a blue light. Being a Junior, I can understand that, because it's not absolutely essential that we get on a truck.

    You aren't alone. In fact, I'd say probably 90% of the country is that way.

    this is true, when they switched blue lights from being "courtesy" to "must yield" lights in NJ no one under 18 is allowed to have them

    I just got a 350Z and I think it needs lights... What type is safer so it won't scratch, magnetic or suction? I'm assuming suction. Or anyone recommend any ones in particular? ( in my state you're required to have them visable for 360 degrees)

    Can't get dash because it needs to be visable 360 degrees... which prettymuch only allows roof lighting right?

    No. Hide-a-way strobes, when placed right, can be seen from 360 degrees.

    You still havnt givin a legit reason as to why you want lights on your POV.

    Easy. If he wants to spend his money that way, and given he's not a junior, let him.
