Every vehicle has the ability to turn on flashing lights. Most commonly, police cars, ambulances and fire trucks employ flashing lights as a warning to other drivers of an emergency. A normal motorist can emgage their flashers in case they are pulled off the road in an emergency or going below the speed limit.
Various types of fire trucks, which will vary by department and what kind of environment they operate in. A more rural fire department might have trucks with internal water storage, whereas an urban fire department can rely on the availability of fire hydrants. A city fire department would be more prone to having hook-and-ladder trucks in order to reach tall buildings, whereas this wouldn't be as much of an issue for a more rural fire…

Fire trucks always come with ambulances because skills a fireman have might be needed that a paramedic does not. They go hand and hand because you never know when the situation might call for it. The ambulance and driver is for transport and treatment to the hospital, the fireman is for rescue or getting the person to the EMT for treatment. An ambulance EMT can't get someone out of a burning house or wrecked car…

Yes. There is nothing in the law that says police must have their lights on on the side of the road. Think of it as parked car, do you need lights on when you park your car on the street in front of your house?

Easier to see. Not all are red, some places they are white, others places they are yellow. Just like not all police cars are blue. It depends on what color the city (or county) wants them. Color of fire itself is what originally caused all items related to fire fighting to be RED. The yellow mentioned above is probably "lime-green". The federal government did a study once and determined that "scientifically speaking" the lime green…
