A brief guide to Fire Station Flashers
Fire station flashers come in two basic formats: Type 1 and Type 2 systems.
Type 1 consists of flashing amber or red lamps. A Type 2 system consists of flashers where
both red and amber lamps are used in the same signal face, and follow a specific sequence
for the lamp cycle.
When filling out the following forms, start by selecting a Type 1 or Type 2 flasher format.
Next choose the activation method: Activation methods consist of a handheld radio
transmitter, wall mount transmitters or a combination of the two. Fire station flashers can also
be activated optically using both TOMAR and OPTICOM optical pre-emption equipment.
All systems include an omni-directional clear confirmation strobe. It should be noted that
the standard manner in which these systems are installed does not allow the truck driver to
see the face of the lamps. The addition of the clear confirmation strobe allows the driver to
have some sense of the system status.
Please use these pages as a guide and don’t hesitate to call Solar Traffic Controls at
480.449.0222. Our staff will be happy to go over your requirements and help you select
the proper system.
Also, please consult your city or state roadway agency/department of traffic for any
prerequisites they may have.
Thank you for considering Solar Traffic Controls products.
