    Odyssey Emergency Vehicles / Odyssey Automotive Specialty

    Odyssey filed for bankruptcy and was sold off at auction. It has kind of "morphed" into First Priority Emergency Vehicles of Flanders, NJ. Their website now says: "Odyssey™ is a trademark of First Priority Emergency Vehicles, Inc." First Priority is the current upfitter for FDNY light duty...

    RMS DS-100 The Traffic Stopper / Duosonic Siren! photo ad and patent added!

    It sounds like there's a little man inside the speaker yelling "ow! - ow! - ow! - ow!" as if he's getting smacked around while the combined tone is running. Certainly unique but I'd go nuts if I had to listen to that on a run. The yelp isn't too awful though.

    Uber Rare Federal Sign And Signal Model CJL PA Speaker Base/Blue/Red Split Dome Beacon Ray Model 17 Combo

    Imagine a mechanical siren on the roof! Back in the day, the "police package" on sedans/wagons included roof reinforcement with an extra layer of metal to support a roof mounted siren &/or beacon.

    Need help picking light bar for brush truck

    Even for a vehicle that size, NFPA 1901 is pretty specific, just mounting a lightbar on a headache rack won't meet the specs. At a minimum, you'll also need "one or more lights to each front corner, between 18-48" above ground." Your lightbar will need to meet the specified optical...
