    Chevron striping

    We put it on our 06 LaFrance Pumper Tanker. It really makes it stand out at night. We want to retrofit out 96 Smeal to match this one at some point.

    I posted in an earlier thread somewhere on here a bunch of photos of different color combos. The point is moot however, because the next revision of NFPA 1901 is going to set the colors as yellow and red.

    You can read the changes by looking on NFPA's site at the 2008 Reports on Proposals:

    http://www.nfpa.org/Assets/Files/PDF...-A2008-ROP.pdf

    Page 33 of the document at the above link, and item #15.9.3.2 goes through what I believe you'll see NFPA mandating in the near future.

    (Credit goes to someone else who recently posted this link on the forums, but I think for a different subject matter.)

    We have the red white chevron on two rigs, and I like it alot and it makes sense. I'm thinking of pushing putting it on a bunch of our other rigs that have painted rear surfaces, it should be fairly inexpensive to do and just makes sense to me. I'll have to check with our local graphics purveyor to see what she'd charge to do the install...

    We haven't seen advertising on the fire apparatus yet, but some of the lifeguard units do have "Donated by Chevy... or Jeep... or Nissan... " or whoever.

    We could use the dough... maybe we should.

    Does anyone have spec language or description of the striping on the rear of your units we can model for a new engine we are working on?

    Is there any standard outlining color, angle, width of stripes etc. we should be aware of to use as a guide?

    Re the advertising. Our BA sets are supplied by Drager and their UK factory is in our service area, so theres a bit of a deal about the advertising and the total cost of the purchase. We also advertise some other local services such as the county council run Childrens Information Service. Its not a bad idea when you think about it as the space on the sides of the vehicles s pretty much not doing anything most times.

    Most UK appliances have this sort of striping on the rear. Very, very visible from distance.
