Importance of Fire Lights in the Field

Fire engines equipped with fire truck lights and other emergency vehicle equipment only have one purpose: to respond to emergency calls for help. Without emergency LED lights, volunteer firefighters would take a longer time to respond to emergency calls, even if only by a few minutes. However, in an emergency, minutes can mean the difference between life and death.

Firefighters usually activate fire truck lights whenever they are called to an emergency scene. When this happens, they will activate their lights before they pull out of their garage. The use of LED fire lights allows responding firefighters to disobey traffic laws when the need arises. Additionally, the lights also allow firefighters to warn drivers and pedestrians of an approaching fire engine, which allows drivers to clear a path for speeding emergency vehicles.

Instances When Fire Truck Lights Might Not Be Used

In some instances a fire truck will not use lights while on the road. For example, if a firefighter team begins to respond to an emergency call for help and then is informed that the call is not actually an emergency, the team may deactivate their fire truck lights. Sometimes they will proceed to the scene anyway, or else return to the fire station. Fire trucks also do not use firefighter lights when they are returning to the fire hall after responding to an emergency call. The only exception to this rule would be if the fire department received another emergency call for help while the team is returning to the garage.
