Default When Emergency Strikes, Are You Prepared?

So I'm curious as to what kind of safety/emergency equipment people carry in their trucks. I for one have used every single bit of equipment in my truck more than once. I personally have a Fire Extinguisher, Multiple Strobe and Emergency Lighting(All White), First Aid Kit, Scene/TD Lights, Tool Box with a variety of tools, Florescent Yellow Vest, 2 Knives(one Straight edge, on serrated), and a 3D MagLite

Ok, that didn't answer the question at all. I'll try again. Why do you have your truck decked out with emergency lights?

Multiple Uses- Primarily, I work as an Aircraft Mechanic for the USAF and my truck is my work vehicle, I do a lot of work around runways, moving planes, etc and the extra visibility (especially at night) comes in quite handy.

All those lights will do nothing for me in an emergency. My emergency gear is a fully loaded 1911 and a pocket knife.

True But the Strobe Lights are more for my work, than emergency, but hey side of the road, could come in handy

Well before I moved, it was well equipped.






This shows the rear bar when it is off.



There are red LED's in the grill and blue LED's by the license plate. I added side facing intersection LED's to the side of the WAAG bar too.


And my old truck with a similar setup, plus the lightbar on the roof.



And the first Ranger post-impact also had a similar setup.

I just have first aid, a handheld LED spot light, a vest and a few knives/multitools. Want to get a few strobes, but to get a real set..I don't have the money for them right now. I do have my reason for them, just not in any rush to get em.

I certainly hope none of those get turned on outside the perimeter fence.

Default Re: When Emergency Strikes, Are You Prepared?

When i have an emergency i press the button with the red triangles and BAM I has strobes!!!

But Really though I can see the need for the lights at the AF base but why do they not have a vehicle provided to you already set up for that? I hope they at least paid for those strobes and didn't make you pay for them yourself. Otherwise strobes belong on "Emergency Vehicles" I know some dude ate another dudes face but come on now.
