Factors to Consider for Emergency Light Installation

Surface mount lights, visor lights, dash lights, headlights, and light bars are just some of the many types of lights emergency vehicles use today. With these many options, fleet outfitters can help you determine the right lighting for your emergency vehicle. With their help, the process will be much simpler. With that being said, there are a number of factors to consider in consultation with your fleet outfitters.

In today’s blog, we’ll go over a few questions to help kick-start the process of finding the right emergency lights.

1. What type of vehicle are you working with?

It is important to know what kind of emergency vehicle will you be using the lights for. Different types of emergency lights are more suitable for different vehicle types. For instance, patrol cars normally use the most common type of emergency lights, including surface mount lights, interior lights, and light bars. Consult with your fleet outfitters to determine which kind of lights are suitable for your unique applications.

2. Where do you want the new emergency lights installed?

Light bars are the best choice if you require 360-degree visibility of high intensity flashing lights from the roof of your emergency vehicle. Off-road light bars can be added to pickups and SUVs that are designed to run off-road. However, LED hideaway strobe lights are great choices if you need hidden warning lights. Remember to talk to your fleet outfitters about unique circumstances, such as the right lighting equipment for pursuing a person or vehicle in low visibility conditions.

3. Are the emergency lights to be mounted permanently?

For example: traffic advisor lights, designed to warn motorists to slow down, change lanes, or prepare to stop, can be installed permanently or temporarily on the roof, front, back, or inside of emergency vehicles. Whatever the purpose of adding lights to your emergency vehicles, always consider the cost as well as the mounting options.
