09/14/09 117 W, 1 I - + 7 - 8 Emergency Vehicle Visibility and Conspicuity Study


As this Firehouse.com article reports, the United States Fire Administration (USFA) released a study of emergency vehicle visibility and conspicuity1 in August. The 45-page study details "best practices in emergency vehicle visibility, including discussions about retro-reflective striping, chevrons, high-visibility paint, built-in passive light and other reflectors for emergency response vehicles." Exceptionally interesting reading, and with a cover that includes a certain local paramedic car. The now-familiar Battenburg pattern is discussed on pages 14 and 15, and includes a pair of pictures. Our portfolio is growing! Download the report, or click the cover to access:
 


 
1For extra credit, say conspicuity ten times fast.
