If you want to have a fire engine, this is possible in principle if you buy a decommissioned one or simply convert a car accordingly. And that is also possible with a normal car! Because there are many fire engines at the fire service that are not trucks. For example for small operations or for the operations manager. Regardless of the vehicle model you have, you should of course pay attention to the basic color. So the car should be red if possible or painted in a white color. So you can save the complete painting of the car. If you have a white background, you can cover the car with red film accordingly. Conversely, you can work with a red car with white film.

Special signaling system and legal matters

In addition to the look, a fire truck also needs one Special signaling system, But as a private individual, this is a delicate matter. Since you usually don't get permission here. Basically you need a permit from the traffic authorities and a corresponding acceptance from the TÜV. Neither will succeed (or only partially) if you are not authorized to do so. And private individuals are not. For this reason, you should consider whether you really want to equip a private car with a fixed special signal system if this vehicle is to be used again on the road at some point. Alternatively, there is also a mobile blue light that can be attached to the vehicle using a magnet or clamping device. The lamp is then simply attached to the vehicle roof with the magnetic base and can be removed at any time.

Special signal system with battery

Alternatively, there are also special signal systems that can be installed inside, namely on the sun visor. Such special signal systems have the advantage that there is no need to lay electrical cables and no connection. They are often equipped with a strong rechargeable battery or the power is supplied exclusively via a connection cable on the cigarette lighter. In addition, a mobile blue light has the advantage that it can be carried in the glove compartment or in the trunk. So that you have problems with the approval of the car. Of course, with this variant it is also clear that such a blue light may not be used either on or off in public traffic. Use is only legally permitted on private premises. However, if the signal light also has a siren (Martinshorn) integrated, it may also be used on the private premises can not be allowed.

The removal of a fire engine

A radio is also not permitted, which of course should not be missing in a real fire engine. Since one should not use a real fire brigade radio here, the CB radio a legally permissible alternative. Of course, you can still think about whether to remove the trunk or at least part of it. So for example one here Fire Extinguisher, a first aid bag or other fire-fighting equipment. The expansion here can be done either with appropriate systems from the trade or with wood and checker plate etc. as cladding. When dismantling, it is important to ensure that all devices are secured. The key word here is load securing. PS.
