If you were an emt in the past don't you think you should change your registration then? FYI nice truck. Put mud terrains on it and it will look even better. Good luck

I like the EMT tags... it's a nice conversation piece when people ask "are you an EMT" and I tell them about my history in the various EMS services. Since there is no start of life, i'm not in violation of any state laws (FYI if you have the star of life symbol you are supposed to have certain equipment on board)

The Vollie FD and EMT registration doesn't require any emergency lights. If the vehicle is an emergency vehicle , lights and sirens are allowed. Most LE will extend the courtesy to an EMT.
Being an EMT is an experience, I became an EMT in the PD and met many nice people working EMS.

THat's not entirely correct boosti.

Volunteer FF's and EMT's are allowed a single blue light or 2 (if on the corners). They have to be below a certain lumen as well. They are NOT allowed sirens either. And using the blue lights is a "request for the right of way" but is not enforceable with a ticket should nobody GIVE you the right of away (unlike a police car/fire truck/ambulance in which if responding and you do NOT give them the right of way, you can be ticketed for FAILING TO YIELD to an emergency vehicle)... it should also be noted it's still against the law for a police car/ambulance/fire truck to run a red light... but again, NOBODY is going to ticket someone for that (US postal trucks are only vehicles allowed to do what they want).

Anyway... if you are a CAPTAIN of a volunteer squad, you are then allowed a siren and red lights.

DOes that happen on LI... hell no, lol. Even in NJ you see this. Vollies have a LOT of blue/white lights and for the most part, every LEO will leave them alone. There are a FEW LEO's who will bust chops but for the most part, they all leave them be.

Also having a blue light does not make you an "emergency vehicle" only dualy apointed vehicles by the DMV can be identified as emergency vehicles, and as such, require certain criteria.

Are you still active LEO? Did you keep up your EMT or did you let it lapse? I know a lot of forces require their PO's to go through the EMT course and achieve EMT-Basic, but they don't require them to KEEP it up. So my hats are always off to those of you who continue to keep up the EMT-B status.

It's a tough thing to do, both career wise and volunteer wise (paid and vollies experience the EXACT SAME things). You see some BAD stuff, stuff you can't get rid of nor hope to ever see again.

Back to the registration. FD plates don't require you to be a FF. Someone in your family has to be one. EMT plates DO require that become an EMT and are only appointed to a vehicle(s) in your name. I was an EMT when I got mine, but again, since I had them, they don't ask for them back or require you to re-register for new plates.

What I wish they didn't do was CHARGE the EMT's for plate renewals. FF's don't pay for renewals but EMT's do? I never understood that.

I said an EMT or FD registration does not require an emergency light. One Blue light as a Vollie for FD with the signature from the department authorizing the light. We had many vollies in the police academy and the RTC (Instructor's) made it rough on them. Sharing stories of vollies being knuckleheads when they worked patrol dealing with them running lights, blowing through stop signs. I have extended the courtesy to vollies. I let my EMT lapse after leaving the PD. I have no desire to re-take it every 3 years.

Any real performance gains from a cold air intake? I've been thinking of doing one, with the lift I might do one now since I don't get as much HP anymore since I have a lot more weight to throw around. So any little bit will help.

I feel there is but I haven't measured it I also did the exhaust air in/air out so the psyc. attitude from the sound
screams faster so much so my mileage has gone down as my foot has gotten heavier

I've thought about it but the paint job alone will cost as much as the hood, so that's on hold for maybe next year. Now my focus is back on my garden :)
