So, since it's winter and all, I figured it was time to make an updated video of my strobes on my 09 Caliber AKA snow removal vehicle.

Carries:
2 Guys
150 lbs of salt
4 snow shovels of different sizes (for different uses)
Vehicle snow cleaner.

Serves it's purpose, small, pretty good in snow.

Are those intended to be used while working?

I assume you've checked the legality of such lights in your area?

Yeah.

And they're legal. In Ohio, Amber is 100% legal to use if you're on the side of the road, slow moving on a highway, or blocking traffic. Clear is the same way ONLY when it's with the amber.

After Feb, I'll be adding red ones to it, as I will be an EMT. I'll run all of them on calls. Then just amber and clear ones for business stuff.

That looks great! I bet you could do some work installing such lights too if you wanted some extra money.

How about a P.A. next? :)

In the coming months I'm going to put a Whelen Hands free siren.

That way, I can respond to station A LOT quicker. Nothing like an 18 year old running code through town. :D

Trust me the flashing lights and stuff wear off soon enough.

That's in the windshield and the back glass.

that's in the grille. The ones in the grille, I used 3M auto tape to attach them, and that was a year ago. still holding good. They aren't too bright during the day, but you see them without having to look.

and about the EMS stuff, I start the 21st as a trainee. Woo!
