  • New Federal highlighter LED bar

    I just purchased the new federal highlighter bar, its nice but i think has one main flaw. It has a patent pending magnetic switch. You have to wave a magnetic on the corner of the bar to get it to switch one of 20 patterns. I did a write up of the light and side by side comparison pics of this light compared to the Sho me led light plus a video of the flash patterns.

    check it out here at my departments forum boards(Called The Blaze). You must register to view the boards this helps keep out spam but registration is free. You can find the review under firefighting general tab.



    direct link but you need to register at the top header first.Its a great forum board.

            wow you guys are ruthless. No wonder firehouse fourms have the name reputation of rude and crude .

              AND 85% plus of our firefighters are volunteers - so lights are pretty important and relevant.

                And rule #1.... Newbies to the forum shall shut their mouth until they have a clue how it works here. Take your 4 posts and use the search function to see how discussions on lights go here.
                Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                      Before you get your panties in a bunch.

                      IAMAVOLUNTTTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEER.


                      And I evun know how to constrict sentences.

                      In this part of the world (NOT 'Merica) lights and sirens on your private vehicle are NOT ALLOWED..

                      Read this next part REAL CLOSE.

                      THEY ARE FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES ONLY.

                      YOU, in a car or truck or whatever, with your knobber kit behind the seat, are NOT an emergency vehicle.

                      YOU are NOT suddenly Supra-Duper Man or whatever, you ARE a guided (mis-guided) missile.

                      GET OVER YOURSELF. and listen closely.

                      1.

                      You will NOT save everybody, all of the time.

                      Fact of life, grow up.

                      2.

                      Speeding in your vehicle is DANGEROUS

                      Obey every law on the way to the station, break the rules on the job, ONLY when you NEED to save a life.

                      3.

                      EVERY ONE GOES HOME.

                      This MUST include the innocent civillians you blazed a path THROUGH on your way to the station / incident.

                      It is what we, the people that give a damn, REALLY care about.

                      Now PLEASE

                      Shove your lights and sirens where the Monkey stores peanuts.

                      Get the job done, efficiently, effectivley, CORRECTLY.

                      Then tell me one day how your stinking sirens and lights actually made a blind bit of difference to which direction the world turns.

                      I MIGHT buy you a KIWI beer IF you win.

                      PS. If anyone wants to link to this response in the future for the knobbers..

                      NO TRADEMARKS OR COPYRITES APPLY.

                      PS.

                      Tritan.

                      One day, when you are old and grey.

                      You will probably start to realise that getting to the incident is NOT the fight.

                      Until then.... GROW UP and stay alive.

                            This thread has been filed with the mods and should be deleted shortly. Firemen are one of the most respect jobs you would think you would resepect your fellow firefighters.


                            There are other greats fourm boards out there and I have never been treated like this at any of them. I am not even going to touch the "lights don't save time" speech . 85% is protect by vol's not career not going there either. You guys got to learn some respect, most fourms if your new they guide you to where the posts placed not rip you a new one so you won't come back.

                            OUT !

                              Judging by the sounds of it, with your vast fourm experiance you should know about the search feature and how to use it. Just search lights on these boards and you'll see why we are this way. Its pretty lame to see people could care so much about their lights when theres many more appropriate topics to do with the fire service you could be talking about.


                              And the "lights dont save time". They don't. People barely pull over for the big red fire truck come at yah so why are they gonna pull over for john doe and his lights he has strapped to his car. Beleive me, I'm from an area where we have no lights, that you don't need them to get to a call quickly. I can do just as much with out them as you could with yours...
