I take it you didn't get kicked out this time Richard, for running all 3 sirens again?

I'll bet there were a lot of hearing aids going off with THREE sirens going at once from one vehicle!

Here's that 3rd siren behind the grill. Not sure what it is.

It's a Federal model 28. They were real popular in combos over the years.

Growing up our local funeral home had a combo with a siren behind the grill, I'm pretty sure it was a Federal model 28. I remember it sounding *exactly* like the big Qs on fire trucks and as a kid I could never figure out where the sound was coming from.

Quite a difference between the sound of a Model 28 and a "Q", and I have run under both of them. The company that I worked for back in the day had a "Q" stuffed behind the grille of both a '62 Superior Pontiac Consort, and a '63 C/B Olds Seville, so apparently there was enough room in some of those '60's cars. But I do agree that Model 28 sirens were probably more prevalent in combos, due to the lower cost. A "Q" would also coast a lot longer than a "28."
