That varies by state, some areas just require an EVOC card, some want a "Non-CDL" license, others want a full CDL. My state upgrades your civilian drivers license to a Non-CDL Class A when they issue the EVO card, with the expectation that you'll receive appropriate training from your fire company for the Class A-type vehicles, the EVO course here is just a basic "due regard" course with a little parking lot action.RMBROWN said:bad ass i want one do u need a cdl license to drive one tho?....

JohnMarcson said:yes, this truck ONLY has 2 Q sirens and 2 100w speakers... ha ha
aberfitchguy2472 said:The speakers are probably the BP100s with the $300 "Q" covers on them
Oh, and don't forget the two chrome bells on the bumper

txfirefighter23 said:If i remember correctly that chief your talking about passed away a few months back.
Doug said:If I understand FedSig's site correctly, the BP100s aren't available with the electric F logo, only the BP200s are. As such, that would mean they're pounding out 400 watts of electronic siren noise, as well as the noise of the 2 Qs.
I wonder if they use hearing protection while responding? For that matter, how many of their people have hearing issues that could be related to the excessive noise in the workplace (in this case, their apparatus)?
