    Some of the stuff Mr Pratt and Midwest deal with is pretty insane (I've been subbed to his channel for ages). The recent Fed-Ex one was quite the recovery

    Sparky's 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD

    I think for full Euro effect, you've gotta have the beacon off-set to the Driver's side. Or, Double Beacon!

    Your favourite 'weird' vehicles, some real, some "photoshops"

    Correct they are Left hand drive. Although it's not that uncommon for Brits to have Left hand drive vehicles etc (Remember, 99% of Europe drives on the other side) and there a lot of vintage vehicles and imports knocking about. We also get a lot of Tourists bringing their own cars, so feel...

    So, I've recently discovered Heathrow Airport has it's own ambulance service. Why is this weird you ask? They use US built Ambulances. Why is that weird you ask? It's England, these things look very strange going through British streets... They also range in vehicle colour. Including the...

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    I'd assume because it's being projected forwards, and away from the onboard person(s) of the emergency vehicle.

    I told you the Scandies have some odd things going on... I really like the Danish Police's beacon usage - minimalist yet effective

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    Sorry to resurrect this - but I found this snippet from the UK TV show "Police, Camera, Action" in the late 90s. There's actually an old London Fire Brigade, Fire engine with this "siren" fitted....I'll try and find it..

    DPG - Diplomatic Protection Group and I believe it's a 2018 Ford C-Max It's a mystery one really, some people think it's an Old Redtronic, others think it's a Premier Hazard variant. I'd lean towards Redtronic personally. Here's a better example of it:

    Some oddballs in this, even for the UK. Some new vehicles, old vehicles, total variety of light setups and an old Met Police Vauhxall Zafira (It's the black unmarked one) with one of my favourite sirens on it.

    Sounds like it might be a Department insurance policy thing. I think the comparable thing here in the UK is Forklift training. Some Forklift training is accepted as a National standard and you can use that Certificate and training anywhere. Then again you have forklift training that may...

    Might've been the Rover 800 or the Rover P6 with the reserve tank, I'll have to look it up. I know the old Land Rovers have them. Yeah they switched to Astras in the later series, and BMWs. It's funny because they used deliberately altered flash patterns on the lightbars so as not to be...

    It's from the old "Met Sound" siren box (that's it's actual name) and the modern variant, of which I used to own one, is a Stirling SS2H4 more commonly used by Essex Police on their IRVs/Area cars. As for characters, Sgt Cryer, Galloway, Roach, Burnside, Carver, June and Tony were always my...

    Alright. From the long running UK TV series "The Bill" (derived from the nickname of the Police, the Old Bill). The siren tones are dubbed over. (although the siren itself is real "Met Sound")
