    Behind the scenes

    One of the JDI International Spokespeople popped round earlier today, and asked if I was interested in the new Siren options.

    2015 Chevy 2500HD Install

    Have you thought about using a mini-bar instead of a full bar? Something like a mini-Justice would probably compliment the setup, more so than having a full bar stretched across the roof. A lot of maintenance vehicles over here have started to use more and more mini-bars and I have to say...

    Vol/FF Rickey Lee Woods

    A very well done video of the procession and some of the service held, for Rickey's funeral. (This hits home a lot for me, as I know most of the folks in this, know the area and used to live 200 yards from the Church where it all ends) I can see at least 5 other area FD's turning out for this...

    Vol/FF Rickey Lee Woods

    https://mountaineagle.com/stories/longtime-sumiton-fireman-rickey-lee-woods-dies-at-69,29077 Words simply cannot describe this man enough. I worked for the City (Jail/Dispatch) in 2013 alongside him, many times Rickey would be the first one to the Fire Dept for medical calls, I never heard him...

    Escort of a big Oxygen tank

    My understanding on it, is it's all automatically linked, so it's unbiased between Emergency services and the public. Plus the way vehicle registration and insurance works here is quite different to the US, so the ticket goes to the registered owner/address regardless of whether or not they...

    Escort of a big Oxygen tank

    Kind of, they have Police support staff that, usually in regards to the vehicle fleet, have to sift through the automatic camera tickets (you either get pulled over, or caught by camera, which sends a ticket to your address instead of court) to justify why the vehicle was speeding or running red...

    Escort of a big Oxygen tank

    Figured you lot would like this, note the steady burn blue on some of the Police vehicles - this proves to Traffic cameras the vehicle was on an assignment/call, so if they go through red lights or speed cameras etc Also, some genius in the comments said they should have taken the Oxygen out...

    This is like a toned down version of that LFB Range Rover video I posted some years back.

    The Non-Emergency Thread

    So, I got bored and thus JazzDad decided to ask me about "Gritter lorries" (the sort that put salt on the roads) and this gave me the idea of a thread regarding various Highway Maintenance and Road vehicles. - This thing is pretty slick. (Yes, I think that IS an extended crash bumper on the...

    It's more to do with economical impact and petrol prices, rather than actual size of the roadways. Lorries are allowed to go pretty much anywhere unless restricted by road tonnage limits. A lot of our goods/emergency vehicles, are shaped the way they are, not so much to fit in the roadways...

    It's mostly down to the Fleet managers to allocate a variety of vehicles for tasking, within certain budgeting confines. Also probably a few contracts with manufacturers that mean they get a better deal. As for the airhorn, I agree, but it's not really something we use a whole lot in the UK.

    Yep, CoLP (as they love to be known) are for the "City of London" which includes Westminster, the Financial District and Government nonsense. If I'm right, Stirling actually made the Met-Sound siren boxes, or had something to do with the Met, as a few of the "Museum" pieces of the Met have...
