First off, Congratulations! You'll love it. I did and wish I had the time to do more of it.
Second, which department are you in?
Third, Firemen use Blue lights in NY. You need to get a Blue Light Card from your department to legally run it. As for the law, it states that you can only run 1 light fixture in your vehicle. If you get headlight flashers as well, make sure that you get a controller that will allow you to switch them off seperate of the other light. My roommate last year was from Vermont where they allow Vol. FF to run red lights and any number of them and so his car was decked out. Got introuble several times for High beam flashers, as well as running clear/blue and amber/blue in his dash lights. His system was comprised of 2 Dual strobe dashmeisers mounted on the front and rear dash, a Mini-Edge 6 strobe light bar, Highbeam flashers, alternating backup/tail light flashers and a siren. Worked really well, although he only used the dash ones in NY due to getting introuble.
Finally, Good luck with all your training. I am working on getting myself back into Henrietta Fire District after being away on Coop (internship)
