Home of East Carolina University. True college town, I actually love it.


toomanytocount007

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)


ConnorK5

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.


It_is_Luna

Same in my home town, tower truck has the highschool mascot and is orange and black, the highschool team's colors.


s1ugg0

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.


slavaboo_

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


imbrickedup_

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


HazMatsMan

Oh, the Minnesota Vikings bought themselves a fire truck? Looks like they already know how this season is going to go.🤣


NoAdministration1222

Haha dumpster fire?


Derekm247

I actually kinda like it…


Zoopollo

Becky, you can't even see her butt


AATW702

I love it


Jkk0502

Then you would also like Chapel Hill Fire Dept. Home of the UNC Tarheels. Trucks in the same color.


Somali_Pir8

And Raleigh Fire Dept. Home of NC State Wolfpack. Their whole dept has red fire trucks. True college pride.


qikaz

My town in Colorado also seems to have NC State University pride.


ConnorK5

We love to see it. Go Pack.


trinitywindu

Dunno if thats an apt comparison, lol. That said the 2 stations closest to the university have the strutting, wolf logo on them.


davidhluther

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.


Ravik_

This is exactly what I did in saints row 3 lmao


InQuintsWeTrust

When I found out Alpha Fire Company in State College, PA didn’t run blue/white rigs I was devastated


ZalinskyAuto

They should do the same colors on the police cars, ambulances, garbage trucks and other city owned vehicles. /s


CaptainQuadmay

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.


hariseldon9999

I know, right?! It’s 2022; who puts a roto-ray on an engine anymore. I’m sorry, I can’t even….


Rhino676971

However roto-rays do look great on tillers for some reason


PirateGent

LSU has a purple and gold truck built by Ferrara Fire Apparatus [https://localist-images.azureedge.net/photos/34545546443474/huge/e71a96af92c68716d325e3ba4ed88e8926588fb1.jpg](https://localist-images.azureedge.net/photos/34545546443474/huge/e71a96af92c68716d325e3ba4ed88e8926588fb1.jpg)


JJGeneral1

Guess no one’s ever seen “grapeville”, station 21, westmoreland county, Pennsylvania…


Naugle17

Renovo, PA has all-green trucks


happyxpenguin

The trucks aren’t bad. That website though. Holy shit 🤢


Brandeau1

I can’t exactly hate this. I’m a huge Prince fan and would love to see an elegant, well done purple rig.


TheKyFireman

I'm ARFF. I want to sing Purple Rain when flowing the dry powder now.


Brandeau1

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.


Regayov

Should be from Purpleville..


sphygmomanometito

I thought it was from Grapeville at first. Their trucks are all purple.


LaComtesseGonflable

Merciful heavens, it even has a whirligig!


Imprezzed

*Propeller


Ham_On_Pizza

The truck is cool and all but the guy commentating 😂


timmy6591

Successfully made one of the most respected and iconic vehicles in our society look like a clown car.


L-Bison

Rip Kobe 🥲


Traditional_Ad8119

Think that's gross? Look at the entirety of Chapel Hill Fire Department's rigs. Holy Crap.


CaptainQuadmay

They look alright to me. What’s wrong with baby blue?


voodoosmudge

Tbh i sorta like it, it's unique i guess


Asshat82_

Is this guy retarded? No clue what the F he’s talking about


ImAMistak3

And I'd still rather be seen in this dumpster fire than a quint 🤮🤮🤮


Lt_Dumpster_Fire

I can arrange that..


ImAMistak3

Wait actually?!? Bc that would actually be cool. The wagon not the quint. I'm fully prepared to accept downvotes for my quint disdain


Lt_Dumpster_Fire

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.


Old-Extension5356

Ew


yeravgjock

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


BanditAndFrog

They finally allow vids? 🎶It’s about damn time!🎶


pansexual_potato07

Yessssss


djernie

At least it’s highly visible with those signal colours!


dangle_boone

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)

MaxDeWinters2ndWife

Djoe413

In my area we have a dabulance rolling around my buddy did the sound system on. This is atleast 3 times as sick.


HornyPhrog

Ok hear me out I actually love it.


dylsekctic

"Greenville" eh?


Business_Chipmunk_10

Well, it definitely draws attention.


WRXsaurusrex

Arrrrrrggghhhh!


Significant_Bear8248

Looks like a Mardi Gras Float


wetclogs

Rooms startin’ to spin real fast, ‘cuz of all the gayness…


virulentea

TheCopenhagenCowboy

Diggin the purple. I saw some baby pink engines the other day and wished my dept would do a cool color combo


Animekid04

That’s epic


Cybermat47_2

Who let Swindle have a firetruck as his alt-mode?
