Bumper style I was talking about in the last photo.

Shane, or maybe another US firefighter: what's the purpose of the stack of 4 small colored lights at the rear of the cab?

Added by Michael Feldman on 22 February 2010.
They are used to indicate the Engines water tank level.

In the US, I know of many engine companies that run with just 2 firefighters. The lights enable the operator from a distance to kept track of the water level in the tank. When it hits the lowest light, the operator returns to controls.

Ah, OK, makes sense. So much sense, in fact, that I wonder why all (recent) pumpers with tanks don't have them. Cost, I guess.
