We will just have to watch tonight then!

Siren can't be any worse than the current ambulance type... Wail sounds so depressing.

Interesting. Looks to be inspired from British police car designs.

They look ugly, gaudy, and out of shape.

Cool Rumbler siren though. Should outdo the basic wailers found on most DFES gear.

TE216 Commodore passing the city had a new siren, dual tone but no rumbler. Very American sounding with two wails going at the same time but differently timed, very loud.
