    Default interface/rescue apparatus ?

    Looking for any input on a urban/interface type engine that will also double as a rescue engine. Limited off road use but short and narrow. Proably 70% rescue and 30% wildland use. Commercial 4 door cab /4wd - similar to a type 3 but 750 on the pump.

    An RB Timberwolf with 500 gallons of water will give full depth compartments to hold all the rescue stuff. The standard configuration is on an IH 7400, 4-door, 4 x 4.

    We have something in service that we bought in 2005 like you're looking for. I really like the thing, with a few exceptions. PM me for details if you'd like more.

    Smeal has built a few interesting rigs of that type. Check Crimson's site for ideas as well. t.c.

    I thought this one looked interesting.

    All stainless body out of the old R.D. Murray plant in NY I assume.

    2012 BME Type II 4x4 engine, used as an interface rescue. Its tall (10-8) because we wanted the ladders on their side.

    The company builds 80% of their apparatus on green. Guess who their biggest customer is....
