You tell me if 4 q's is necessary to clear traffic


And if anyone has a vid of more than 1 q going at once, I would love to see it

bad ass i want one do u need a cdl license to drive one tho?....
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.

That's a fire department with a heck of a nice budget! I see several of their trucks have Federal 176 Beacon Rays in addition to more modern lights.

The chief of Mt. Horeb is a really old school guy IIRC. He wants his people to be seen and heard!

The speakers are probably the BP100s with the $300 "Q" covers on them:rolleyes:

Oh, and don't forget the two chrome bells on the bumper:p

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)?

Yup you are correct. I just checked it in the catalog. I forgot the BP100s aren't avaliable with the chrome finish and the "Q" grill.


400W, on top of the two Q's, and of course we can't forget the two bells (which I'm sure they have setup to dig somehow). :rolleyes: At least they can be heard approaching, but once they pass you're probably SOL for the rest of your life where your hearing is concerned.


Anyone know if they sold Rescue 40 and what they plan on replacing it with?

...But the lights in back don't match.

For a set of those MattTracks, I can overlook that petty detail.
