Home of East Carolina University. True college town, I actually love it.
Yeah, I’m right by Campbell and their truck and ambulances are black and orange.
Just copying Carolina’s [steeze](https://imgur.com/a/PzRo8G4)
Well maybe Chapel Hill copied Raleigh's steeze...
I've always liked departments that show home town pride. The one place where I lived as a kid had the high school mascot on the side of it's rescue rig. Shows they care about the community.
Same in my home town, tower truck has the highschool mascot and is orange and black, the highschool team's colors.
My old engine had the local school mascot on it. And whatever kid got the best grades got their name under it for the whole semester.
We have a truck that is the colors of the high school team. Chief loves it, most of the department is embarrassed to respond in it
A lot of the engines in my area have a motto and some logo on the back denoting some cultural part of the area they service. It’s pretty cool
Oh, the Minnesota Vikings bought themselves a fire truck? Looks like they already know how this season is going to go.🤣
Haha dumpster fire?
I actually kinda like it…
Becky, you can't even see her butt
I love it
Then you would also like Chapel Hill Fire Dept. Home of the UNC Tarheels. Trucks in the same color.
And Raleigh Fire Dept. Home of NC State Wolfpack. Their whole dept has red fire trucks. True college pride.
My town in Colorado also seems to have NC State University pride.
We love to see it. Go Pack.
Dunno if thats an apt comparison, lol. That said the 2 stations closest to the university have the strutting, wolf logo on them.
I went to school there, I’d gotten accustomed to it and didn’t realize how remarkable it was until I started as a volunteer and went back there for a football game, got all excited like a toddler for any “fire truck.” [Image](https://imgur.com/a/PzRo8G4) if anyone’s interested.
3rd Street Saints.
This is exactly what I did in saints row 3 lmao
When I found out Alpha Fire Company in State College, PA didn’t run blue/white rigs I was devastated
They should do the same colors on the police cars, ambulances, garbage trucks and other city owned vehicles. /s
Okay but quick rant, why do they keep making ambulances in fire colors? They’re supposed to be white with a couple red stripes and some big blue stars!
I had a patient who was tweaking pretty hard after taking some cocaine and meth the other day, and he politely refused to get in because it “didn’t look like a normal ambulance.” I couldn’t help but chuckle.
I know, right?! It’s 2022; who puts a roto-ray on an engine anymore. I’m sorry, I can’t even….
However roto-rays do look great on tillers for some reason
LSU has a purple and gold truck built by Ferrara Fire Apparatus
Guess no one’s ever seen “grapeville”, station 21, westmoreland county, Pennsylvania…
Renovo, PA has all-green trucks
The trucks aren’t bad. That website though. Holy shit 🤢
I can’t exactly hate this. I’m a huge Prince fan and would love to see an elegant, well done purple rig.
I'm ARFF. I want to sing Purple Rain when flowing the dry powder now.
LOLOLOL! We cover an airport so I’m ARFF certified too and I actually did this the first time I drove the crash truck and flowed purple K 🤣 Got a funny look and big eye roll from the Chief in the passenger seat.
Should be from Purpleville..
I thought it was from Grapeville at first. Their trucks are all purple.
Merciful heavens, it even has a whirligig!
The truck is cool and all but the guy commentating 😂
Successfully made one of the most respected and iconic vehicles in our society look like a clown car.
Rip Kobe 🥲
Think that's gross? Look at the entirety of Chapel Hill Fire Department's rigs. Holy Crap.
They look alright to me. What’s wrong with baby blue?
Tbh i sorta like it, it's unique i guess
Is this guy retarded? No clue what the F he’s talking about
And I'd still rather be seen in this dumpster fire than a quint 🤮🤮🤮
I can arrange that..
Wait actually?!? Bc that would actually be cool. The wagon not the quint. I'm fully prepared to accept downvotes for my quint disdain
Best I can do is literally a dumpster fire with tiny wheels that only goes 1 direction. Also only people scared to do every job on scene are against quints... no one talk about quints! You're scaring him Patrick!! Edit: not gonna downvote on this subreddit unless someone gives legitimately dangerous advice.
Normally when I see these home town pride colors on rigs a love it. But purple and yellow is a bridge too far. Respect the commitment I guess
They finally allow vids? 🎶It’s about damn time!🎶
At least it’s highly visible with those signal colours!
Not a fan of this particular school but [they also show some respect to there towns university](https://oanow.com/news/auburn-fire-division-to-roll-out-new-fire-truck/article_4679595b-88f4-5e7a-bb43-85a5bf06cc99.amp.html)
College town dude
Who gave LSU a firetruck?
East Carolina University
That’s my school!!! I unapologetically love it.
In my area we have a dabulance rolling around my buddy did the sound system on. This is atleast 3 times as sick.
Ok hear me out
I actually love it.
Well, it definitely draws attention.
Looks like a Mardi Gras Float
Rooms startin’ to spin real fast, ‘cuz of all the gayness…
It's orange and grape flavoured
Diggin the purple. I saw some baby pink engines the other day and wished my dept would do a cool color combo
Who let Swindle have a firetruck as his alt-mode?
