Temporary Emergency Vehicle Lights

Do you never know what vehicle you’ll be driving from day to day when you get to the station?

Are you a volunteer first responder and use your own vehicle when you’re called out?

Does your standard issue vehicle have a permanent light bar, but not much more?

If you’ve answered ‘YES’ to any of these questions, then what you need is an emergency light with a temporary mount setup.’re in luck because Extreme Tactical Dynamics  has several types of lights that come in numerous sizes and with various placement options.  To help you decide which temporary mount emergency light you need, all you have to do is to answer a few more question.

  1. Where do you want to put the light?  Inside or outside of your vehicle?
  2. How much light do you want to add to your existing setup?
  3. Where do you want to install it?

Let’s say you want to add a lot more light to the exterior of your POV, and you have no light bar.  Either of the  Mirage 12 or 20 light bars would be perfect because they are low profile, shine in 360°, and produce 66 or 114 Watts of high-intensity flashing light. You ‘pop’ them on once you’ve reached the scene and they plug into the cigarette light socket. Powerful magnets hold them in place! If you’ve already got light on the roof, ‘stick’ them on any flat surface in the front or the back even on a tool box.  And there are 9 other designs to choose from; all attach with magnets and all shine in a full circle.

It’s easy to attach with clips.  It’s a great stealth light as well since it hides behind the visor.  Other visor lights come in pairs, one light for each side. There are 8 choices, but the #1 Best Seller is the Stealth Commander 9 Linear LED Visor Light. It has 90 Watts and 26 flash patterns with optional takedown lights.  The controls are on the back of the driver-side visor with also has a flash pattern display strip. There are 10 bundles with include surface mount lights. (Surface Mounts, while permanently mounted blend well with manufacturer’s lights because they come with  a choice of chrome or black bezels.)

If you’re a ‘seasoned’ first-responder, these are a perfect addition to your light system without having to take the time to do any hardwiring. The swivel design of the suction cup bracket insures a tight fit. Depending on the model, you get from 19 to 30 pre-programmed flash patterns; all models come with pattern memory.  A long power cord allows you to put the light bar anywhere you want on the interior.  Remember sometimes you might want to put the smaller units on side windows.

There are options galore when thinking about purchasing a temporary light for your emergency vehicle. Magnets, clips, headliner brackets, and brackets with suction cups make it possible to quickly mount this category of emergency lights.  The cigarette lighter power plug with flash pattern and ON/OFF switches is a standard feature for all ETD ‘temporary’ emergency vehicle lights.  And, in many cases, the lights are 100% waterproof, sealed with industrial grade epoxy, so if you change your mind and want to hardwire them, all you have to do is buy the right bracket.  ETD has those, too!
