    As a volunteer firefighter we generally respond to the scene or the station with our personal vehicles. Are any other prii drivers vollies? If so, what setup are you using for your lights. I was going to put a stealth kit into mine, behind the visors, but it looks like space is quite limited. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    I don't personally, but my dad just uses a dash mount unit.

    Would a flashlight app that flashes red, white, blue strobe on a smartphone do the job?

    Not so much. I need highly visible, as well as front and rear lighting. My response area is mainly a heavily travelled highway and on some occasions my personal vehicle is used to respond


    iPhone ?

    I'm a vollie in NY and they allow us to have 1 forward facing blue light. I have a Whelen Dual Avenger mounted in the front windshield as you see; it's perfect behind the rearview mirror so it doesn't interfere with visibility whatsoever. I ran the chord underneath the lip on the edge of the A-pillar right down to the outlet, so it's a clean, simple setup that I'm pretty content with. I also have a less expensive lightbar that I mounted in the lower rear window that I don't use all that often.

    Sorry to revive a dead thread, but I have the exact same question.

    What did you end up using for emergency response lights?

    I’m considering a stick in the rear window and a dash/windshield mount in the front.

    It would be nice if I could wire the LED DRLs to wigwag too for additional visibility.

    We also respond POV to incidents on state highways, so high visibility is necessary.
