Emergency Lights

Anyone here a FF, LEO, or EMT? What do you have in your jeep?

I use a "slimlight" led light bar. Suction cup mount to the inside of the windshield. 2 1/2'' X 26'' long with 84 leds. Sits right above the rearview mirror. Plugs into the lighter. Didn't want to hardwire it in and leave it in the jeep with the top and doors off. Having the plug I can easily remove it at any time.

FWIW, one of the members of a local Jeep club is retired LEO and he has small strobes mounted on the bottom of the tailgate and front and rear corners of his Jeep.
Hope this helps.

I just installed the Whelen PAH112 AirHORN/Public Address. I just use it for fun. I have a ton of LED and STROBE lighting but the housings on the JEEP are pretty limited. I hope to get some lights installed "for fun" but I have not done that yet. IF anyone has done hideaway strobes, I'd love to know where they hide the control unit.

I have a Mini-Halogen Rotating Light bar, Dash light and Sho-Me LED Micro-Lites Vehicle Lights in mine. They work really well for when I'm out on a rescue call in the middle of the night.

If you add emergency lights or sirens they should be professionally installed by a local Federal ?Signal or Whelan dealer. The worst thing is to be responding to an incident and suddenly having your lights go dead....also make certain your siren pitch is not similar to any other units to avoid the intersection issue of the sirens canceling each other out due to common pitch. The other thing to watch out for is the insurance issue; in many states you are not covered unless you have a rider for the equipment and it's use.

In NY state light bars are magnets for State Troopers who consider the IPO devices and can issue tickets under the "bright lights law". I think other states have adopted similar laws.

One other thing is make sure you have rear lights/LEDs...to avoid some phone talking nitwit running into your stopped vehicle. The most noticeable warning lights, according to the NTSF, are the headlight "wags" or headlight housing mounted LEDs. Check the CA life guard service for how they rig their Jeeps.
