Nope, the only stickers on my windshield are my vehicle inspection sticker, and the parking permit for where I work. I do have department plates on my truck for identification, but I didn't see the need to add more than that.

The fireman rubber ducky on my antenna is just for fun. The whole family has rubber duckies of one type or another on their antennas.

IMO, the NR stickers are a bit tacky. There are thousands of NREMTs out there, and I don't see the need to express any kind of "brotherhood" with people I likely don't have much in common with. I don't mind department stickers at all and do have one of those on my car. That makes more sense to me as an expression of agency pride.

As a new EMT student, no. But I did get a "You call, we haul" for fun the other day, it made me laugh. I do have a 1* though on my rear windshield.

It's not going to get you out of tickets.

I have a small agency sticker from previous place that I am too lazy to take off. It's a star with the company name in tiny script.

I have ems plates on my car, I put my hazards on and it allows me to get through a road block and get to the scene of an accident while waiting for my ambulance to arrive. I don't use it to impress anyone, I have them to get me to certain scenes we respond directly to.

My truck has a plate but I have the luxury of only needing to use my vehicle for responses to the FD or weekend truck related duties... I have a different vehicle I use the rest of the time....

All either have for stickers are NRA stickers.

I have a Combat Medic sticker on the back that a friend of mine gave me. Other than that I don't have any stickers.

I have a small star of life decal on the back window of my truck just to be a wacker. I also have some off-roading decals on the window also.

I have a pink reflective star of life in the bottom corner of my back window.

It has gotten me out of 1 ticket lol and I just like it.

Nothing.

I have no interest in being flagged down at a wreck just cause someone has a scratched bumper and neck pain.

"Flagged down at a wreck"? Seriously?

If I was flagged down at a wreck and I didn't see ejected passengers littering in the roadway, I'd offer to call 911 for them.

I've had an EMS sticker in one form or another in the back window of my vehicle since 1988. Know how many times I've been flagged down at a wreck? Zero. Nada. None.

Know how many times I've stopped for a wreck? Twice. Once to tell the person to get out of the road and pull his car to the shoulder and the second time when the car was on fire and the driver was wandering around, disoriented in the travel lane on the highway.

I think stopping twice in 25 years is pretty good. And it had nothing to do with my EMS sticker. :)

25 years!? That's longer than I've been alive... ;)

I don't have any on my truck. Well I have some diesel performance company stickers from the parts under the good but nothing EMS related.

Not that I don't want one, just haven't found one I like. Hell, I've got a star of life tattooed on me so call me a whacker if you wish.

Depends on where you are. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

I mean the sticker, especially a plain star, all by itself. Agency sticker and affiliation is a totally different story. I can't imagine any cop saying "I see you have a star of life, no ticket for you!"

No but I got.. "I see your sticker there. Where do you work? Or you work for ABC company? Have a nice day."
