Red sticks out and can be seen easily. There is a joke, why does a fireman wear red suspenders? So, that his pants should not fall down. In Sopron, Hungary where I was born, there is a tall tower dating back to the Romans which can be seen all over the town, called the fire tower. They would look out for a fire in the town.October 5, 2021 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #2012546Reb EliezerParticipant

It is to show that the firemen are REDy to save livesOctober 5, 2021 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #2012569CTLAWYERParticipant
I was born and raised in New Haven, CT. The firetrucks were and are WHITE. We owned a business in Hamden, CT the trucks used to be a Yellowish Green Color. Now they are Red with white upper sections.
The town I live in now uses red trucks.
40 years ago I was in business in Danbury. Paid firefighter drove red trucks, the volunteer companies drove the color of their choice.
It is up to the individual municipality to decide.October 5, 2021 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #2012574Dwayne The Rock JohnsonParticipant

Red is NOT the most highly visible color. This matter was studied years ago, by a respected group of experts (I regret I cannot remember the name of the experts or the study). The study concluded that the most visible color is a neon yellow with hints of green, a lot like the color of the Hatzolah ambulances. I think the fire trucks are still red because of a long tradition, and red is visible enough.October 5, 2021 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #2012632KuvultParticipant
