Blue Lights OK’ed For Volunteer Fire Fighters

The policy allows volunteer fire fighters to display a blue flashing lights to the front or a rotating beacon visible to 360 degrees around on a fire fighters personal vehicle. Firefighters in good standing with the department will be required to have written authorization from Fire Chief John Coughlin to use the lights only for responding to a fire or other emergency. The authorization is valid for twelve months unless otherwise suspended or revoked and will be terminated when a person is no longer an active firefighter.
