That is pretty interesting I never seen a fire appliance anywhere else in the world that has a red light on it except for Australia and Tokyo unlike us in the United States just the standard is just a red flashing light sometimes with white sometimes with a flashing green light which of course is famously seen in Chicago.

Brandan - Blue lights are also showing up on quite a lot of US fire trucks and chiefs' cars in recent years. Some fire services in the Middle East and other Far East countries, as well as South America, prefer red lights, too.
