We are in the very early stages of spec'ing out one, maybe two new engines. More in the talking about it stage then the writing it down if that makes sense. The sticking point is that alot of the firefighters (myself included) want a raised rear cab. The problem we have is the deputy chief that is heading up the committee saids if we want them we need to justified why we want one. So, help me out, the only thing we can come up with is a more open area in the rear to ride. Why did you guys go with the raised cabs.
