    Connecticut, these may vary a bit, but around me:

    Police; Blue, Red, sometimes White
    Ambulance; Red, White
    EMT POV; Green. No one pulls over for these, I think most civilians don't know what the color means. Most EMTs don't bother with the green dash light because of this.

    Fire; Red, Blue, White
    Vol FF POV; Blue
    Volunteer FF POV can also have wig-wags with signed permit from Police Chief.
    Vol FF Officer can also have siren and red lights with state permit.

  12. Washington State:

    Fire - Red, clear
    Vol. FF - green, must have a plate designating them as Vols and a card issued by the dept.
