Hello,Alex said:Here is a sample of my small collection of apparatus photos. These photos were taken around the Phoenix-Metro area in Arizona. Enjoy...
Is the aeros on it gear or indepedent rotators? From here the big one look like it's an Aerotwinsonic. I don't see many fire depts with blue lenses. Around here they use all red or red/white/red.
Alex said:I couldn't tell you for sure. I can't speak for the northern regions or the Tucson Metro areas, but the Phoenix Metro Area departments run Red/Blue warning systems. Coming from a midwestern state where law enforcement ran red/blue and the fire departments were only red, this threw me off a bit. Having spent a few years here, I like that most emergency vehicles are red/blue.
If you see red/blue in your mirror, pull over. Its that easy. Anything else, use caution.

Very Odd Indeed. As you watch to see what the heck it is passing you for sure, you scratch your head and wonder, AMBER??? WTF??? do I need to pull over for a tow truck or construction vehicle to???

SAMUR in Madrid runs red and amber. Also, ambulances in Catalonia have begun using red/amber or blue/amber combinations.NJEMT said:I dont understand what is with the yellow/red combo. At least it is not like Spain where ambos run only yellow
