Fire engine red is an intense, bright red commonly used on emergency vehicles; mostly on, as the name implies, fire engines.

Most traditional older fire departments in larger central cities of major metropolitan areas use this color for their fire engines, but many smaller cities and also many suburbs now use the color chartreuse yellow for their fire engines because of its supposed greater visibility at night.
