Where to Buy Green Lights for Volunteer EMTs and Firefighters

Updated on December 28, 2011

Green lights for Volunteer EMTs

I volunteer as an EMT in Connecticut. Since I ride with an ambulance only squad, I am allowed to run green flashing lights on my personal vehicle while responding to a call. (I believe the same is true in Indiana and New York as well. Certain places in Canada use green lights for firefighters.) If I rode with a volunteer fire department affiliated ambulance I would run blue flashing lights instead.

A few years back I decided to upgrade my green lights to LEDs and I hit the web to shop. I quickly discovered that green warning lights are much harder to source than more common colors like red, blue and amber. As part of my shopping process I compiled a list of vendors who sold (at least some) green lights on the web.

I've listed those sources that have at least some selection of vehicle emergency lighting in green.

Green Emergency Lights Are Harder To Find - Uncommon usage means that the market for green lights is small

Finding green lights for sale is tough. Many vendors who sell emergency lighting don't even bother to sell, much less stock, green lights. Below I've made a list of online stores that do sell/stock green lights.

Online Sources where you can buy Green Lights

LED Flashers, Strobes & Halogens

LEDGUY.net - I've bought from this store great products, great prices, great service.

Lone Star PSE - I've also bought from LoneStar Public Safety equipment. Again, great price and great service.

Strobes 'N More

911 Lights (Link goes to search for Green)

Southwest Public Safety

Fleet Safety (Limited Green Selection)

Galls (Very Limited Green Selection) -- Galls prints a paper catalog that you've likely seen laying around your ambulance station. for some reason Galls (online and in the catalog) does not serve green light buyers well.

Reader reviews of green lights

What type of green light(s) have you used? Let us know the good and bad green strobes and green LEDs that you've used.

Other tools for EMTs

Great tools, or great gifts, for the EMT in your life. I own and use all of the items in this list.

3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, Black Tube, 27 inch, 3128
3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, Black Tube, 27 inch, 3128

Expensive, but worth it. In the back of a noisy ambulance the value of a good stethoscope justifies its price. Great for lung sounds and makes catching that difficult blood pressure a cake walk compared to using the beater ears that your service likely stocks on the rig.

 
ADC Responder Jr. Durable Nylon Holster for Medical Scissors, Black

We run two ambulances. The first one always has a full uniform crew ready to respond.

Our second ambulance is staffed by paging out available crew members as needed. I keep one of these holsters in my car so I have everything I need to be ready to hop on a back-up rig call.

 
Prestige Medical Fluoride Scissor, Black, 7 1/2 Inch

Great shears, I keep a set in the above holster.

      Far and away, the best quality and least cost source for green LED dash lights in at www.dash-flash.com. The company is run by police officers and volunteer firefighters, so they are familiar with our needs. They also sell red and blue lights, corner strobe kits, sirens, etc.

      One of the guys I ride with has an all green ET-7 from ETD.

      That thing is wicked bright to the front, but off to the sides it isn't as bright.

      I've heard that the ET-7 is way better than the other stuff at ETD, so be careful shopping over there.
