    The fact that it didn't help in one (or many specific) examples doesn't mean that it doesn't have the potential to help. The potential goodness of having an aural alert of a truck incoming into an area where passengers are evacuating amid fire, smoke and confusion is self evident.

    (and I know you didn't say that the SFO case proves that the sirens are useless, and you know I didn't say that you said it)

    In addition to all that, I suppose that sirens are standard equipment in all firetrucks and while airport firetrucks are quite specific they may be used in other applications, so probably it doesn't make sense to have a sirened design and siren-less design.
