Scene Lighting Tips: Lighting the Front Corners

SEVolunteerbanner

The corners off the front of an apparatus cab can make it difficult to eliminate dark areas with scene lighting. Southeast Volunteer Fire Department in Texas found a unique way to handle this problem, using a 72″ FireTech Brow Light paired with two outward-angled MiniBrow Lights on each corner of the cab.

The 3-LED MiniBrow Lights, which use flood optics, throw light in both 45 degree directions. This setup is useful for off-angle positioning on scene and address spotting.

With Corner MiniBrow Lights

All three light fixtures are mounted on a custom mounting bracket. The front of the cab can often produce a shadow on the ground in front of the rig. This bracket places the lights forward of the leading edge, ensuring no light is blocked by front edge of the cab.
