All we're missing is a Garner truck for a full spectrum of chevron colors courtesy of Wake County, Durham County and Six Forks EMS units. As photographed at the airport maintenance building, post-drill.

Who dictates what colours chevrons should be? Is it left up to each department?
In terms of stand-out-ish-ness I think Wake is first and Durham is last.

I am unaware of the standards for ambulances, but the NFPA 1901 (2009 ed.) for fire apparatus states the rear should be covered with at least 50% striping (chevrons) that are: 6” wide; at a 45deg angle down and outward from the mid-line; and are a single color alternating between RED and either: yellow, fluorescent yellow, or fluorescent yellow-green. So, the specified colors are: Red/yellow, Red/fluorescent yellow, Red/fluorescent yellow-green.
