Emergency lighting color depends on the state. Texas: Red and Blue for any emergency vehicle including POVs. And actually an emergency vehicle is only required to have one "rotating" red light that can be seen 360 degrees. When I was in my other FD, I had Red, Blue, White and Amber on my POV. So in Texas, as long as an emergency vehicle has 360 degrees of red from the highest and widest point, any other color is allowed by law however a department can decide on whether or not to allow that or be more stringent. I know some Fire Chiefs only like red on their vehicles and many cops only like blue on their vehicles. New York is red and white for police however they can use blue along WITH red and white. FD/EMS is red and white only. I think Tennessee is blue only for police.
So with all that said, when you travel to different states it is a good idea to know what colors police use. Coming into Texas (a person not knowing lighting laws) if a car pulls up behind you with just a single blue dash light or kojack/gumball on top you wouldn't know that is someone posing as police which can obviously be dangerous. But if you did know that this vehicle behind you is not the police or you are suspicious of it you can call 911 and ask for a uniformed, marked unit. That is what you should do anyway if the vehicle looks questionable.
