Connecticut, these may vary a bit, but around me:

Police; Blue, Red, sometimes White
Ambulance; Red, White
EMT POV; Green. No one pulls over for these, I think most civilians don't know what the color means. Most EMTs don't bother with the green dash light because of this.

Fire; Red, Blue, White
Vol FF POV; Blue
Volunteer FF POV can also have wig-wags with signed permit from Police Chief.
Vol FF Officer can also have siren and red lights with state permit.
