A few months ago (many months) Firehouse magazine showcased a department with a new type of apparatus. The vehicle looked like a large engine (tandem axle) but had the full function of a ladder company. It carried mostly ladder company tools and few engine company tools. It also had a new name that i hadn't heard before, and today some fellow firefighters and I were talking about different apparatus and i remembered this one but do not remember what it was called. I know it wasn't quint or squad, but quad does sound familiar. Does anyone remember the article and what this truck was called??
