    More details...

    What makes it a "rehab" truck?

    Is this a county-wide or mutual aid resource?

    I've always said that our County would do well to invest some money in a county Rehab Rig (I was thinking a nice metro bus retro) then the investments made in 12" hose and super-duper pumpers, etc...

    It will be available to our area departments by a mutual aid request.

    It has seating capacity of 8 with the thought of getting firefighters into a climate controled envirement if needed,it has 2 refrigerators than run on the kussmaul plug at the station and switch over to truck power once running for gatorade and water bottles and perishable snack items will be stored also in them.It has 3 quick pop up canopys 10 x 10 on board and a 24 foot automatic canopy on the officers side to be used for shade with 13 fold up camping style chairs. It has 2 cooldraft misting fans for use under the canopy and we currently have 6 of the cool shirt system (vest you put on with hose attached to cooler that circulates cool water thru the vest to help lower your body temp) with plans to purchase 6 more it has 3 igloo coolers that carry water and gatorade with a coffee maker on board and also high calorie snacks. It also carries 7 portable tables for holding of snacks and any hot foods that we purchase depending on length of call it also has the bauer 13 cfm mobile cascade compressor and a 2 bottle refill station on the rear compartment for unlimited refilling of air bottles, it also has the rv style bathroom on it and 1 light tower on the top of the cab. I can't think of any thing else to mention i hope this answers your questions let me know if you have any other questions. To me its kind of a 2 in 1 truck mobile cascade/ rehab the department decided to name it rehab 1

    it really does sound like a good vehicle.
    how has the area done rehab prior to this? is it a canteen group or auxillaries or ff's that will bring this to fires or other large scale incidents?

    hey capt old timer since you sound like a fan of crimson i threw up a pic of the new pumpers also. lol

    ffmed rehab was originally done by volunteers from the emergency management group but the disbanded several years ago and we converted a rescue truck to a rehab truck which then we replaced with this one and it will be taken to scenes by firefighters

    Very nice.

    Just curious...what's securing your extra air bottles in their slots? Our rescue/air/support truck has an issue with the air bottles coming out of the slots. I've got a solution that I'm about to implement, but it'd be nice if the manufacturer had provided a securing system to prevent the bottles from coming out of the holders...
