I am a member of my local volunteer fire department. We have reciently switched from the green rotating dash light to the visor mounted multi LED green strobe lights. I was wondering if we are still in compliance with the HTA since a LED can be interpreted as more then "a" flashing green light. Also if anyone knew what the definition of "a" flashing green light under the act is. Is it one Lamp? One Housing? One controller? any help will be much appreciated.
Yes still in compliance. An actual strobe light in most emergency vehicle lighting went out many many years ago. way too expensive and drain too much power and needed a booster system to function. what you have is an LED light flashing at variable rates.
