Oh shit, my mistake.

I meant to say Lumina not Cavalier. Not super famliar with that part of the GM product line, so I got the two mixed up.

The Taurus I'm doing is probably an 03. The 98's look ugly, and I dont want to be staring at this for hours as I build up the model.

Looks like a Dodge Neon rip-off.

I'm still unsure whether to make it 2 Lumina marked units or one Caprice, one Lumina.

I can't wait to see that Tahoe, sounds good 

The Tahoe we're using is the model thats been in the LA mod for years now. Here it is in my LA mod.

Ill take this model, shorten it, remove some parts and add an overhead lightbar to it. Should look good once its finished.

Ok cool, And if it means anything I would suggest to do one lumina, one caprice. Lumina's weren't really great cars in general and were terrible police cars.  My department bought luminas in 1998 last one I saw in front line service was 2000, Most were repainted dark blue got transferred to school safety shortly after they were deemed unfit for patrol they lasted another few years before they started blowing head gaskets before they hit 50k. Our caprices lasted up until 2007 when they started retiring them due to age.

 

That being said it would still be cool to see one in game. And good call on not doing the catfish taurus the next generation looked a lot better

As long as roof rails are removed and maybe some steel wheels that truck would look good. 

For variety I would suggest 1 caprice and 1 lumina

Gonna make a poll out of that so that people can decide which setup they want. I'll be limiting suggestions to the vehicles mentioned in previous topics so that we're not making out of place combos like a 2017 truck but with a 1990 car, or a fleet of HEMI Chargers.

Might I make a suggestion 1 caprice/ 1 CVPI? 

 

Also have you considered just making the Tahoe a slicktop marked unit? I know a few small depts around me to save on vehicles  when to slicktops because light bars are $$$. 

Keep up the good work!

I added it into the poll.


Does anyone know if Montana volunteer FF POV's run sirens or not? Ive figured out they're allowed a non specified number of (only) red lights. There is no information on siren usage though.

In my experience the state laws are the law of course but individual fire chiefs also set their own standards. I've known of chiefs who didn't let any POVs run lights/sirens, I've known of chiefs who only let officers run l/s and some that only restricted l/s to junior firefighters (under 18).

Looks like sirens are legal

It says 'authorized emergency vehicles' though. That part confuses me. I have no idea if that includes POV's or not.

Another function we've decided to implement is a PA system for all siren equipped units.

It includes multiple variants for both male and female units. The command is intended for perimeter and scene control. When you press it, all nearby peds will turn around and leave. Combine this with the 'halt' command on police officers, and you should be able to lock down an area easier than before.

Good for evaluations or moving people out.  Will the command work with the civilians?   Also nice icon mic.  I would used that for emergency vehicles on scene back round radio chatter noise .  it would give a cool real effect.    

If you look in the comments in the Video you can see while he is talking to BMA he clearly states that it will

Why  not send a letter down to Monida Pass? You would get a more detailed response, and I bet they'd think it's pretty cool your re-creating their town.

Monida Pass doesnt exist IRL. Its nothing but prairie and a highway.

Here's a video of the portable pond functions. This should make firefighting easier in the mod.

This is real neat! my town uses portable ponds a lot, we got plenty of hydrants, but when we get a fire it always happens to be just too far away from one for us to connect to it.

I live in a city so a lot of these rural firefighting techniques aren't really employed. City doesn't even have a tanker because hydrants are super abundant. Montana is nice because it gets me out of my comfort zone and I get to do different style strategies than what are employed around me.
