    Default Vehicle Lighting

    Is there a NFPA standard for lighting requirements on "light duty" vehicles such as staff cars, utility vans, etc? Does anyone have a copy of this I can download ?

    Thanks

    Should be in NFPA 1901 rev 2003 I think it is- just type that in google and you can go right to the NFPA guide "preview" pane and browse through it.

    There may be something for vans and that type of vehicles. Really unless it is a real responder type vehicle there arenít any requirements on how to light up or trick the ride. Staff cars and chiefís cars are usually outfitted by the local department as they see fit.

    Most departments using Crown Vicís use a light bar and have headlight flashers and strobe flashers in the rear tail lights.

    Those using the SUV types use a bar light too and a lot use lights on the front and rear fenders and on the back of that type of vehicle.

    Try looking up on the FDNY web site and take a look at their BCís vehicles. For a lot of department it may look like and over kill but it works. Philly has a nice light package for BC cars too.

    If I come up on some photos, I will either attach them for you and all to see or will send them to you.

    I have been down in your area and have seen the SUV's you all use and other type of rides and they look pretty good to me. Of course every one marks and installs lights as they have the money and the desires to mark them. From those I saw several weeks ago I thought they look good as they could be done.

    I think that Whelen has a list of packages that will meet NFPA or KKK specs on their site for various applications. It is a backwards way of getting it but you may be able to figure it out that way.

    I think Code 3 may have a similar NFPA package .pdf you can look at too...
