View Full Version : Flashy Lights!

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.
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?

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

HAHAHHA and remember, no matter what the call is, you gotta run it code HAHAHHAHA

how many leds per light and whats the watt output?
I have a rotating light but was looking for flashing grill lights. I dont want to get something underpowered.

aaaahhhh to be 18 and a Hot Dog again.
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!
