6 Types of Fire Engine Red

 ,
Fire engine red is a color that is traditionally used on fire trucks in several countries such as the United States, Canada and Japan. This isn't necessarily standardized and several variations exist that are all designed to be highly visible. Red symbolizes fire and danger. As such, this is an intuitive color for a fire truck that is immediately recognizable and easy to distinguish from other emergency vehicles. Modern studies have suggested that other safety colors, particularly greenish yellows such as lime yellow or chartreuse yellow are more visible in wide ranging conditions. The following palette includes two shades of fire engine red along with a few thematically related colors.
