    This One Has Me Baffled

    just saw this on EBay. A Whelen cadet with an antenna connector being used for power. Not sure if this belongs to anyone here on the board, but this sort of made me scratch my head. Anyone ever seen this used for 12vdc?

    I will be moving to the Phoenix area in the coming months. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with any particular brands or types of goggles to use during dust storms. I've been there in 2 dust storms previously, and that dust can penetrate everywhere that you think it can't possible get to...

    Horton Ambulance Battery Question

    We have a 1992 Horton Ambulance (Ford E350) that is used as a Command Post, an equipment hauler, and a place to get EM personnel out of the weather on scene when necessary. The unit only sees extended use a few times a year, and otherwise sits, plugged-in using the on-board Kussmaul unit. This...

    Fireball II Question

    I have a Fireball II (rotating, not the strobe) that I want to clean up and keep in the wife's car since I drive it occasionally. Gears are a little noisy and I don't think it's rotating quite as fast as it should (I know it's a slow light, but I think it's just a little slower than normal.)...

    Solar Trickle Charger for Vehicle

    I am thinking about buying a solar trickle charger to use in our POV's for those long periods of time when no one is available to start or run the vehicle.

    Step for a Van

    I am looking for a sturdy step to mount under the Driver and Passenger door on a Chevy Astro Van. Go Rhino makes a stationary step that will work, and they also make a spring-loaded step that can be opened/closed manually. I figured that some of the installers here may have preferences for...

    Interesting Plow Trucks

    Various types of plow rigs in this video. Some NSFW language in the video. I guess you can put a plow on anything, but everywhere I've lived large plows have always been dump trucks, so I found these to be interesting. Sorry if it's a re-post - I didn't find it in search. Love the old school...

    PA Governor Expected to Sign Purple Light Law for Funeral Processions

    I didn't find this in any subforum. If it's a duplicate, mods can feel free to delete it, but i did check. Typical political dealings - as the law was about to be sent to the Governor, someone slipped in a change allowing illuminated sports team decals in the rear windows of all vehicles...

    I'm working on the logistics of our narrowbanding and am looking for feedback from those that have done it.

    Exhaust Fume / CO2 Removal

    My agency is using a retired Horton Ambulance (Ford E350) as a mobile command vehicle and occasionally as a rehab vehicle. One of the issues I'm finding is that while parked on a scene, most of the doors are open more than they are closed, which ultimately brings an excess of diesel exhaust into...
