      Blue trucks

      Plymouth Fire Co. (Montgomery Co., Pa. Sta. 43) is one (very dark, almost Navy blue). Beverly Road Fire Co. of Burlington Twp., Burlington Co., N.J. is another (home of the Blue Goose, very light, almost powder blue). I know that there are many others around, too.

      Stay safe out there, everyone goes home!

        Color don't mean squat.

        Chapel Hill, NC (Home of the UNC Tarheels) has some light (Carolina Blue) apparatus...don't know how many but at least one. In my 28 years I have seen literally EVERY color you can think of on apparatus scattered across the country, from traditional red, to black (Jack Daniels Distillary), purple, green (of every shade), lavender (yes lavender), orange, and gray. I figure somewhere out there is at least one pink one in service. As long as it gets the job done, and is a safe to operate piece of equipment it don't matter what the color is.

            Gladstone MO runs blue rigs.

            I hear the main reason for this is because the city of Gladstone is landlocked by Kansas City Mo, and of course, they have red rigs. Well, quite often KCMO uses a major trafficway that goes down Gladstone. Quite often the Gladstone chief gets complaints on the driving of the trucks. he askes what color the truck was, and they always say red. So its just a way for him to watch out on his guys. Honestly it doesnt look half bad either.

                CHFD has all, but one, Carolina Blue trucks. If I'm not mistaken, the only one that is red (Tower 71) is being replaced this year with a new truck... it will be Carolina Blue also.




                That's some of their trucks, you get the point!

                      Color

                      I had the good fortune of working on the Jack Daniel project for both the pumper and the ladder. I never really gave it much thought beyond red or white until we designed the rigs for Engine and Ladder 7. Having responded on each and having seen them respond, they are noticed and people get out of the way. What ever you do regarding apparatus color, Keep it consistent.
