    Very nice but also way to expensive no doubt. If it was a gas powered golf cart you might be able to run the exhaust through that feaux jet engine and spark it for flames

    That spine board looks like what I need after a shift when I want to crash and my back hurts. The firmer the bed the better the relief, I can sleep on a concrete slab and feel 20 years younger.

    And I'm glad I don't work for ADT. Charger? I know quite a few here (s/o's and police) that don't fit in those and drive the old Crown Vic's still as only the shorter officers can fit into them. Also seems kind of high budget for security.

      That looks like the KED that I used way back in the early 1980s.

        I remember those well. It major improvement over the old short board and loose straps. We thought it was the best thing since MAST Pants, Lifepak 3, and sliced bread.

          Our organization used to use MAST pants when doing CPR. The therory was that it meant there was more blood going to the brain & vitale organs. Did any other EMS systems use them for CPR?

            Yes, we used them for CPR and splinting.

                        I want to know how you are running a vehicle with a restricted light color in Pennsylvania and can get it past state inspections. Every time I took my Jeep in, my mechanic requested to see my blue light permit to make sure (a) I was a vollie and (b) I was allowed to have it by my VFD. Not saying it can't be done, cause it but just wandering as to what sort of site you work at that you got the OK to do it.

                          The process of getting any required paperwork is handled by the Board of the Community. I work in a private community.
                          Apparently it is not difficult, as almost every private community in NEPA runs either blues or reds, or both. The vehicles are opperated on private roads as well.

                            Isn't PA a state where the light law is "on the highways of the state?" i.e. if the vehicle never activates its lights on public lands, then its perfectly legal to have red/blue/green/purple/rainbow LED light bars.

                              Nate, yes PA is a state that anything goes off the highways. However as I stated his vehicle has a state inspection sticker on it, he also states that he drives it on public roadways. It isn't hard to get a vehicle registered as a emergency vehicle, but I was wondering how they got it done. Do they run EMS or Fire/Rescue operations as well or are they registered as some type of private police force (which isn't too unheard of in that state as private colleges and hospitals run their own PD's out there). Just curious as to his departments status or rather the registration of the vehicle. Finally if he is running solid blues, that is technically (unless they changed the law in the past few years) only for volunteers to use on their POV's. Red/Blue generally denotes LE, Red or Red/Clear general denotes FRES. My guess (please gf45 correct me if I am wrong) is that they do EMS and security and got the approval for the colored lights by saying they run their vehicle as Quick Response Service unit or QRS.

                                Howdy,
                                While I do not know exactly how our management handles the paperwork, we do run first response for med as well as other public safety functions. Our officers are all required to have first aid, CPR, and AED certs, and our vehicles carry the gear, including AEDs.
