Type of apparatus
A few months ago, at least in last years edition if Firehouse Magazine, a department showcased a "new" type of apparatus it had put in service. It was an engine but had the full function of a ladder company (tools and assignments with very few engine company tools), and they had a new name for the type of apparatus it was that i had never heard of before. Some fellow firefighters and I were talking about apparatus and i remember seeing the article but do not recall what the apparatus was called. I know it wasn't called a quint or squad, but quad does seem to ring a bell. Does anyone remember the article and what this truck was called??

I've also heard similar vehicles called ladder tenders. They have the tools and ground ladders of a typical truck company -- but no aerial. Of course, a ladder tender would probably not have a pump.
I just noticed you started a new thread (Apparatus Type)...

Quads aren't new, they've been around for 70+ years at least.

You can go back and research the Magazine and it will show it there for you!

I believe the truck you are referring to belongs to Fair Haven N.J. Here is a link to a photo page for it. (May have to cut and paste)
I think this was actually in Fire Apparatus Magazine. Hope it helps.
