Why Is This FDNY Call Box Painted Fluorescent Orange?

This old-school FDNY Call Box on the corner of Bowery and Rivington, is easy to spot, as it is painted a bright florescent orange. According to Bowery Boogie Dot Com, the call box was formerly an art installation; part of Two Rams Gallery’s Alarm! exhibition, which ran from February 5 – 22nd, 2015, and for which the call box was painted bright florescent Red. As the exhibit has now ended, I imagine someone felt it was necessary to achieve closure by painting it orange.
